Invasion of the Body Snatchers

Philip Kaufman USA, 1978

Marcus Killerby's rating of the film Die Körperfresser kommen

Brilliantly creepy and tense for the first hour... just downright scary. But it gets silly. Very silly. I can't for the life of me understand why anyone is scared during the dog scene. It's accompanied by the most ridiculous banjo music. The use of music and sound throughout the entire film is poor, it becomes very annoying. Good performances, atmosphere and direction save this film.
