Invasion of the Body Snatchers Reviews

This film wants to have it both ways: to have a more urbane, more "important" scope than the original, and yet retain some of its inexpensive intimacy as well.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

The film collapses midway -- because of unsure and sloppy direction, splintered story continuity, and the overacting of Adams, Cartwright, and others.

...what if the mask of your neighbor tilts for a second and you catch a glimpse of the riot going on behind his face?

It was always going to be hard to better Don Siegel's 1956 classic, and if director Philip Kaufman doesn't quite succeed, he does manage to summon up an equally chilling air of paranoia.

Siegel gave the frissons classical sharpness while Kaufman goes for baroque erudition

This will read less like a review and more like a valentine, but this is a very, very special film, a forgotten classic of the '70s cinema.

Matt's Movie Reviews

On top of being an engrossing conspiracy thriller in step with the gritty urban tales of the time, the Invasion of the Body Snatchers is also a genuinely creepy film which slyly suggests there is something sinister beneath the surface.

If not quite as great as its predecessor, still a pretty damn fine genre picture.

It's not only the best of the four films based on Jack Finney's story, but also one of the best films of the 1970s.

Kaufman here turns in his most Movie Brattish film, but soft-pedals on both his special effects and knowing in-jokiness in a way that puts De Palma to shame.

The screenplay by W.D. Richter builds at a deliberate pace, and within the first half hour we're already disturbed by the almost imperceptible behavior of those who have been snatched.

Deve ser encarado como aquilo que realmente é: um terrorzinho-ficção científica descomprometido com a lógica e preocupado em manter o público acordado por 2 horas.
