Invasion of the Body Snatchers

Directed by Philip Kaufman

An example of that rarest of things – a remake that equals, if not improves upon, the original. The 1956 paranoid classic is updated to 1970s San Francisco by director Kaufman and writer W. D. Richter, giving them licence to comment on contemporary concerns regarding conformity and selfishness while crafting an expert horror/sci-fi thriller.

The fear of losing one’s identity is always with us, making Jack Finney’s source story eternally relevant and re-tellable. However, it’s never been told as terrifyingly as this.
