Invasion Of The Body Snatchers

Pauline Kael called Invasion of the Body Snatchers “a new classic… the best movie of its kind ever made.” But when she said “its kind,” she wasn’t talking about alien thrillers or horror movies. She was talking about remakes. The original Body Snatchers was a pretty fantastic sci-fi horror film of the ‘50s, addressing the Red-Scare-era fear of Communist infiltration by fictionalizing them as space aliens grown from pods and invisibly taking over people’s bodies and lives. But when this version came out in 1978, remakes weren’t particularly common. The cultural fear that the people closest to you weren’t what they pretended to be hadn’t changed, however; the ’78 film develops and expands on the lizard-brain horror of not knowing who to trust in a profound and personal way. Classic performances from Donald Sutherland, Brooke Adams and Jeff Goldblum, along with a tremendous score, keep this classic feeling fresh and creepy no matter how many times it’s remade.

1978 / PG / 1h 55m / Horror
