I watched this movie last night. Checked it out of the library and it was a bit better than I thought it would be, but not nearly as good at the 70's remake.
Anyway, I noticed that none of the "alien" microbs showed any intrest in taking over the bodies of the handicapped or midgets. This made me think back to Willow and how I thought it was absurd that midgets could save the day. Apparently, there are situations were midgets have the upperhand.
