"The function of life is survival."
Whether you love the works of best-selling author Stephenie Meyer or not, there's no denying the incredible influence her Twilight series of books, and the movies based on them, has had on the horror genre and vampires, in particular. Meyer's tale of the star-crossed lovers Edward and Bella transformed the concept of vampires as unholy, unclean monsters to be feared and reviled into beautiful, tragic creatures capable of undying love. And, if the new movie based on one of her books, The Host, is successful, Meyer might well accomplish the same thing with alien invaders that she accomplished with vampires, ushering in a new wave of romantic alien possession movies.
Until then, we are left with the legacy of the invading lifeforms that want to take over our bodies and minds in alien possession movies being the stuff of nightmares, rather than of fairy tales: malevolent, insidious, revolting creatures that you would much rather terminate than take out on a date. Help us rank the creepiest, the scariest, the all-around best movies about alien possession.
