O.K. rehash of many of the themes we saw in "The Hidden" has Rae Dawn Chong as a cop on the trail of an alien who decapitates people, then borrows their heads.
His only problem posing as earthlings is that his newly borrowed heads have a nasty habit of exploding, forcing him to murder and decapitate more and more people. Dark, professionally directed and moody, the film fails to overcome a slow, dull pace, and Chong is nothing to twist and shout about.
But cult movie fans desperate for something to watch might get a mild kick out of it. I'd give it just a mild thumbs up. Director McNaughton became famous for directing "Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer."
For some reason, this film has never been available on DVD.
