If aliens came to Earth demanding to view an alien invasion movie, this would be the most typical example one could find. As it copies themes and plot points across the genre. I'd personally direct them to Invasion of the Body Snatchers, the original, as that is a classic example. In this movie, alien virus fragments fall to Earth due to a space shuttle incident. The fragments begin to slowly take over the humans one by one. Once infected and only once the human falls asleep will the virus be able to overtake the host. A secondary and weak side point is dialog about humans being an evil race as the infected humans lack emotions and personality thus making them all alike and impervious to conflict and hurting other humans or something like that. So would the human race be better doped up and in some robot state where they won't hurt each other or better as we are now? I guess if you have never seen a movie with this plot, it would be fine and dandy as it had quality production value, tense moments and big name actors. Too bad the script was so trite and predictable.
While returning to Earth, the space shuttle explodes and the fragments bring an alien virus that recodes the human DNA. In Washington, the psychiatrist Carol Bennell observes the modification of the behavior of one of her clients first, then in her former husband and finally in the population in general. Together with her friend Dr. Ben Driscoll the researcher Dr. Stephen Galeano, they discover that the extraterrestrial epidemic affects human beings while sleeping and that her son Ollie, who had chickenpox when he was a baby, is immune to the disease and may save mankind from the outbreak.
