In my opinion, the scariest American movie of the 1970s (a decade that offers plenty of competition) and one that inverts the idea of the scream from an involuntary expression of terror to its cold, calculating source.

It wasn’t just verbally knowing: Its wit extended into the compositional elements, symmetries of plot and production design, even the delectably macabre sound track. It’s a nightmare of hip gnosis bridging the pulp allegory of Don Siegel’s 1956 original with the icy domestic touch of Chantal Akerman’s Jeanne Dielman (1975)—that’s what gives its estrangement such a specific satiric jolt, but also enhances the utterly mundane, methodical, step-by-step terror of the Pod takeover.

Throughout this version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, one of the subtlest and most extraordinarily fluid of American horror films, Kaufman crafts textured scenes, rich in emotional and object-centric tactility, that cause our heads to casually spin with expectation and dread.

  • Duncan Gray's rating of the film Invasjon fra rommet

    A superior remake, with 20 years of new FX and formal sophistication on its side. Moving the story to SF is fruitful: paranoid funk is in the air there, and this upscaling wouldn't be the same in any other metropolis. But it falls short of greatness. For all its interesting thematic choices—civil servants, pop psychology, unspoken love, city life, the attitudes of the Me Generation—none of them are fully actualized.

  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film Invasjon fra rommet

    I had forgotten how good this movie was! Nearly 40 years later, I still love it. Don Siegel, director of the first 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers' in 1956, can even be seen as a taxi driver. Strongly recommended.

  • Richmond Hill's rating of the film Invasjon fra rommet

    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.

  • Renton47's rating of the film Invasjon fra rommet

    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.

  • Scottie Ferguson's rating of the film Invasjon fra rommet

    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.

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Invasjon fra rommet

    The first act is nearly flawless in its sense of encroaching doom, as panicked citizens flee for their lives in the periphery of shots. Director Philip Kaufman makes excellent use of his San Francisco setting and the post-Watergate era's general mistrust of the government. But in turning the Pod People into hordes of shrieking zombies, they somehow become far less scary than the quiet, civil invasion of the original.

  • mjgildea's rating of the film Invasjon fra rommet

    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.

  • Palmat's rating of the film Invasjon fra rommet

    Not bad at all. The acting, direction and production design really delivers but the script is little bit light in some parts and could have used some beefing up or trimming. The score by Zeitlin doesn't help the movie either. It sometimes hit the mark but misses way too often and has a detrimental effect on the suspense. Donaggio or Herrmann would've done wonders in this film had they been given a chance.
