But why humans? There pods, not a sentient being so why not consume all the... lets say cats. Or maybe because a farmer found it? Who knows. Plus why does a body need to be produced by the pod? At the end Becky was taken over by sleeping for a second so why is the duplicate body needed. Why did the clone of Jack wake up and where did it go? Jack was then taken over when he slept so what about the clone? Maybe he went to the Bahamas. Or is there two of everyone?

But I'm nitpicking. I actually enjoyed it and if the 70s remake is on TV over Christmas I'll watch it probably.
But on an ending note: In the movie I thought Kevin McCarthy (Dr Miles Bennell) looked a lot like Keifer Sutherland in some scenes. Keifer's father is Donald Sutherland who plays the main character in the 70s remake. Weird...
Here he is:
(Why wasn't this scream in the original? Was this an adaptation of the main siren?)
