Trailer Terrors: Seedpeople (1992)

The root of all evil.

Somewhere between Invasion of the Body Snatchers and Critters lies the hidden gem of Full Moon Entertainment zipper-puppet cinema called Seedpeople.

As many horror fans out there are alreay well aware, Full Moon has made its name with what I would term tiny terror films such as Puppet Master (1989), Demonic Toys (1992) and the ever loveable Prehysteria! (1993). Seedpeople is no exception to this trend, following the residents of a small town called Comet Valley (go figure) as they try to fight off a trio of plant-based space invaders.

Overall, its a solid Full Moon release of like-minded caliber to Castle Freak or Puppet Master, only sharing a few laughs while trying to play the script fairly straight. I said straight, not smart, because while it may seem as though Seedpeople is trying to convey some of the intellectual bite of Invasion of the Body Snatchers (either version), the film is really a flimsy mishmash of space alien stereotypes. If you liked any of the films referenced here or even Killer Klowns from Outer Space, then Seedpeople should be right up your neck of the woods. The full film is currently available on YouTube, check it out.
