Director Kaufman takes a more visceral approach to remaking the paranoid sci-fi gem. The leafy visuals he crafts work, for the most part, resulting in a film that isn't as intensely scary as it is generally unsettling. The spiraling invasion is done well and the film builds and builds into a catastrophic finale.

A decent adaptation of this venerable story. The acting keeps you interested, the story is both creepy yet relevant and the casting is well done. It may not be the best horror/sci-fi ever, but it's better than most.

"Invasion Of The Body Snatchers" by Yojimbo

Donald Sutherland stars as a public health inspector who is initially sceptical of his friend's claims that people are being "changed", but soon discovers a widespread conspiracy to replace the entire population. One of those rarest of the rare examples of a remake that surpasses the original, it dispenses with the anti-communist allegory of the 50s version and concentrates on outright horror; in fact because of the appearance of Kevin McCarthy from the original film it can be argued that this is more an unofficial sequel than a remake. The effects bear up quite well (with the unfortunate exception of the dog-with-a-mask-on!), the pod people "birth" scene being particularly unsettling and reminiscent of Cronenberg's favourite subject of corruption of the flesh. It has a tense, oppressive ...

Creepy!

I decided to watch this film because critics cannot help but label "The Invasion," starring Nicole Kidman, as an abomination. Well, I'm glad as saw this movie not because I thought it was better than "The Invasion," but the fact that it's a completely different interpretation of what was happening. This one is more focused on the paranoia than the disease itself, which I thought reflected the late 70's. Regardless of the dated feel, I felt like the actors delivered strong performances. The special effects are not bad at all and the story kept me interested. My only minor complaint is that it is almost two hours long. By the time the ending arrived, I was exhausted. They could've cut some of the exposition a bit, although I think that's one of the reasons why it's not your typical horror f...
