This sci-fi alien movie freaked me out when I first seen it on TV many years ago.
These days, probably seems tame and, not so strange, compared to other flicks.

This is such a great movie, I don't know how I missed it when it came out. The plot is well-thought out to dovetail our real world problems with what the aliens are up to. Of all the alien themed flicks I have watched, this is in the top 5.

After watching this, you will know why Mark Zuckerberg's knees bend funny like that. :-D

The data entry is wrong for this- it came out in 1996, not 2009.
