Every since I got into watching films frequently I've discovered a taste for certain genres: one of my personal favorites being the midnight drive in B-movie films. Thus, it makes sense that the original Invasion of the Body Snatchers from 1956 is one of my favorite films in that area (not to mention one of my favorite films of all time). The way the story was told was gripping and suspenseful in ... read more

Since I really liked the original version and since this movie really had a solid reputation as well, I was quite eager to check it out. In fact, the first version I saw was the 3rd one directed by Abel Ferrara but, to be honest, at the time, I thought it was really weak but since Roger Ebert apparently really liked it maybe I should check it out again. Anyway, coming back to our main feature, fro... read more

"I like some scenes in the old one better, but this one is a much better written film. Thanks for fixing the ending."

RS: 50 Best Sci-Fi Movies of the 1970s (51 movies items)

"Easily among the greatest remakes ever made, Philip Kaufman updates Don Siegel’s McCarthy-era classic to 1978 San Francisco. Donald Sutherland’s trench-coated health inspector discovers that citizens are transforming into dead-eyed replicas of themselves. Like a deathblow to the wounded remains of the Sixties, the mysterious affliction drives people to distrust their neighbors, their community, and the environment. Kaufman proves singularly adept at keeping multiple genres and tones in play,"

"1.2. Yle Areena Vaikka tarina on tuttu, on paranoia niin hienovaraisesti rakennettu, että hyvin pian alkaa kyseenalaistamaan keskeisten hahmojen mielenterveyden tilan. Vekkuli kuvaus tukee tätä epätietoisuutta. Konformismia ja tämän kautta ihmisen tyhjyyttä käsitellään jopa hienommin, kuin alkuperäisessä. Lopussa on ankeus maksimoitu niin taidokkaasti värien käytöllä ja kirjaimellisesti hymyn hyytymisellä, että se kylmää tosissaan."

"Throughout Invasion of the Body Snatchers, one of the subtlest and most extraordinarily fluid of American sci-fi horror films, Philip Kaufman crafts textured scenes, rich in emotional and object-centric tactility, that cause our heads to casually spin with expectation and dread. Kaufman and screenwriter W.D. Richter fuse paranoia, eroticism, and flippancy to arrive at their own distinctly flakey yet intense genre-movie style.
