Invasion of the Body Snatchers

Philip Kaufman USA, 1978

mjgildea's rating of the film Die Körperfresser kommen

4 1/2 out of 5 stars. Thoroughly impressive. I still love the original a bit better but this version was so creepy and ominous, magnificently infused with the spirit of the best conspiracy thrillers of the 70s. The cast was great (Leonard Nimoy was an excellent touch) and the hopelessness of the situation (especially the lack of sound during the end credits) made it. Great effects and the McCarthy cameo was superb.
