  1. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Invasion of the Body Snatchers

    Excellent paranoia riff by Kaufman with an assured use of naturalistic detail to cover the plot hysterics. As with many 1970s films there is a great sense of flowing choreography with neat editing of scene bridges, sound cues and fluid camerawork. In lesser hands this could have been a derivative hack job; instead an intelligent audience pleaser with themes of conspiracy and (if not too fanciful) national meltdown.

  2. VincentVendetta's rating of the film Invasion of the Body Snatchers

    Don Seigel's classic being one of the ancestors of the New Hollywood, Kaufman's version isn't timely as much as it is opportunistic. Less subtle than a 50s B-movie or a film by Abel Ferrara, it offers no meaningful update beyond directing that tries too hard to captivate. Like a sequel to Tron made in 2010; it's so obvious, it's useless.

  3. DenoResandono's rating of the film Invasion of the Body Snatchers

    A remake of 1956 movie of the same name. If the 1956 version is a sci-fi thriller, then this movie is a sci-fi horror. In my opinion, it's more horror than sci-fi. Although this movie has the same basic storyline, this movie has some different way to tell its story. Like the previous one - it's haunting, thrilling, plus it has an eerie music score. It also has a paranoid feel. Maybe, it's one of the best remake...

  5. Rocco's rating of the film Invasion of the Body Snatchers

    That idiot dog and the un-cinematic warehouse destruction aside, this was really quite effective. Poor, cute, Veronica Cartwright!

  7. Fajar Ibrahim's rating of the film Invasion of the Body Snatchers

    It's one of those horror remakes that actually worked. I still prefer the original, but this one also has the uneasy and quietly frightening quality that other one possessed. That man-faced dog and those screeching though. They're stuff out of nightmares.

  9. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film Invasion of the Body Snatchers

  10. Renton47's rating of the film Invasion of the Body Snatchers

    One of the troubling aspects of Kaufman's approach is the vantage he allows the non-human organisms; the opening, the phone booth, the positively alien score beeping and whirring, all work to suggest that his sympathies are somewhere between his characters and their environment. And why not? The humans flee, but without any reasoned resistance. The fear might be uniformity, but nature makes a compelling argument.

  11. Scottie Ferguson's rating of the film Invasion of the Body Snatchers

    A lot of films from around this time try to capture the paranoia and cynicism of the post-Watergate 70s, but it took an update of a sci-fi McCarthyism parable to really pull it off. Both a product of its time and completely timeless in portraying the fear that those closest to us aren't who they say they are. And oh, don't fall asleep - those who dream are bound to get screwed. Absolutely brilliant.

  15. Sophia Park's rating of the film Invasion of the Body Snatchers

    This is the pod person version of the original.

  16. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film Invasion of the Body Snatchers

    Worry leads to fear; fear leads to anxiety; anxiety leads to paranoia. The escalations & transitions are fluid. Difficult to say what is real & what's not? However, aren't we used to live in an atmosphere of worry? Environmental desaster, terror, kidnapping, suicide bombers, madmen, cult fanatics...& why not the arrival of the evil from another planet? This movie masterfully captures these escalations & transitions.

  17. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Invasion of the Body Snatchers

    The image that haunts me here: the husband, dressed for work early in the morning, sweeping something off the floor... Far more chilling than the pods.

  18. Craig Knittle's rating of the film Invasion of the Body Snatchers

    terrifying, ingeniously shot.. love Donald Sutherland in this.

  19. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Invasion of the Body Snatchers

    A diferencia del clásico de Siegel, a Kaufman no le interesa dialogar sobre la paranoia extraterrestre o de secretos de Estado. Aquí el remake trata sobre la rutina de humanidad. Este versión se aleja a fascinación por seres del otro mundo y en su lugar hace una apología zombie o sobre cómo la humanidad está inmersa a la deshumanización. No es gratuito que el primer amante de la protagonista "siempre" haya sido raro.

  21. Michael Peer's rating of the film Invasion of the Body Snatchers

    Great ending. Doesn't hold up very well for today's standards. Even silly at times but it's still a very effective sci-fi thriller. Notice the way Kaufman shoots the lamp shapes. Reminiscent of David Lynch.
