The first remake of the paranoid infiltration classic moves the setting for the invasion, from a small town to the city of San Francisco and starts as Matthew Bennell notices that several of his friends are complaining that their close relatives are in some way different. When questioned later they themselves seem changed, as they deny everything or make lame excuses. As the invaders increase in number they become more open and Bennell, who has by now witnessed an attempted «replacement», realizes that he and his friends must escape or suffer the same fate. But who can he trust to help him and who has already been snatched? With Donald Sutherland, Leonard Nimoy, Brooke Adams, Veronica Cartwright, Jeff Goldblum.

«Employing gritty camerawork and evocative sound effects, INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS is a powerful remake that expands upon themes and ideas only lightly explored in the original.» (Rotten Tomatoes)

«INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS validates the entire concept of remakes.» (Variety)

INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS (Phillip Kaufman, 1978 / 115 mins / PG) In this elaborate remake of the 1956 horror classic, health inspector Donald Sutherland is dispatched to investigate the curious behavior of several San Francisco restaurateurs. He begins to notice that even those closest to him are behaving in a detached fashion. The source of this ennui is an alien attack.
