Man, I remember this movie being a huge deal when I was a teen. Everyone was weirdly talking about this movie like it was the be all end all of movies. I must admit, I did get swept up into seeing this on opening day, mainly cause MTV was promoting the hell out of it and Tommy Hilfiger was sponsoring this movie for some reason, I guess they saw it as an avenue put their clothes on pretty young actors in a high school setting. Either way, I was and still am, pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoy this movie, even after its release in 1998. It doesn’t hurt that Robert Rodriguez directed this more teen friendly version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
