NotesA young girl is 'infected' by alien substances. These are tiny corpsules which repair any breakdown in the body's cells thus making her immortal. Naturally a fiendish scientist is after her while a private eye seeks to protect her. Steve Carroll writes: "Another truly awful movie with Michael Beihn. If you have ever read Robin Cook's novel "Invasion", this is very similar. It begins with what appears to be a large spaceship hurtling toward Earth. When it finally crash-lands on earth's surface, it is realized that the ship is barely the size of a small rock, and lands in a playground, where a child (Lindsay Haun) gets cut by it. Haun's character has Cerebral Palsy (she does not in real life) and a few days after the encounter with the little ship (they come to be called Reds), she is cured. Unfortunately for her, the fact that these things (there are apparently more of them) cure conditions and let them live longer makes Haun a hot commodity with many unscrupulous types. She and her mother are persued and find refuge (temporarily) with a man (Beihn) who promises to protect them. It's been awhile since I have seen this. "
