The Puppet Masters

Aliens land in Iowa and take over humans. Sutherland has been this way before (Invasion of the Body Snatchers, 1978) and it shows. There's no suspense (ETs rampage from the word go); no frissons (loud hailers telegraph the shocks); and it's insufficiently bright to be an hommage.
