All the tension and scariness of the original has gone and in its place is a bit of floppy old cabbage. See the Fifties version if you can.

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.

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

Gives remakes a good name.

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.

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.

[VIDEO ESSAY] Thematically, the film's allegory regarding viral-groupthink has plenty of wiggle-room for interpretation because it is so profoundly vague yet universal.

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.
August 13, 2016
A remarkable science fiction tale that still stuns, baffles, and chills.
March 26, 2009
Invasion of the Body Snatchers validates the entire concept of remakes.

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.
