|Plot Summary of The Puppet Masters|
The Puppet Masters are here! These evil parasites from a certain moon in our solar system have came to Earth in their flying-saucers, and starting to take control of human beings by sitting on their backs and somehow operating their brains! They cannot survive more than two minutes without some kind of a host to control (by the way, it doesn't have to be human...). Our hero, an agent in a US secret agency, is selected along with few others to try and understand the aliens, and combat them if possible. Meanwhile, more and more aliens are coming, more and more territories are falling under their control! Could the human race, the pentagon and the secret agency save the world from the alien menace? (once again?)
This synopsis report prepared by Dimitri Melamoud
The Earth is attacked by an invasion of pancake monsters
who attach themselves to the backs of people and take
over their minds. A lot of people get taken over before
a super-secret agency catches on, and humanity has to
try to figure out how to stop this subtle invasion before
everyone is taken over.
