Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978)

Aliens are cloning humans in this remake of the 1956 sci-horror, based on Jack Finney's novel. Donald Sutherland and Jeff Goldblum star.

Matthew Bennell (Sutherland) assumes that when a friend (Brooke Adams, The Dead Zone) complains of her husband's strange mood, it's a marital issue. However, he begins to worry as more people report similar observations. His concern is confirmed when writer Jack Bellicec (Goldblum) and his wife (Veronica Cartwright, Alien) discover a mutated corpse. Besieged by an invisible enemy, Bennell must work quickly before the city is consumed.

Kaufman here turns in his most Movie Brattish film, but soft-pedals on both his special effects and knowing in-jokiness in a way that puts De Palma to shame.

There's a little something extra in virtually every frame of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Philip Kaufman's dazzling remake of one of the cleverest of horror classics.

For once, a great remake, smartly executed. Great performances and a killing ending that will stay with you forever can't hurt, either.

[Kaufman] weaves an increasingly sinister cityscape through prowling camerawork and a highly effective stereo score.
