Director: Philip Kaufman

Starring: Donald Sutherland, Brooke Adams, Veronica Cartwright, Jeff Goldblum, Leonard Nimoy, Kevin McCarthy, Art Hindle.

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 115 minutes

Synopsis: In San Francisco, a group of people discover the human race is being replaced one by one, with clones.

Philip Kaufman’s acclaimed adaptation of Don Siegel’s 1956 sci-fi classic Invasion Of The Body Snatchers remains one the earliest and beloved remakes in the genre, while remaining faithful with author Jack Finney’s source novel ‘The Body Snatchers’. Director Kaufman’s paranoia-fuelled update improves on the simple storyline of a population being replaced by emotionless alien duplicates by shifting the extraterrestrial terror to one of the United States’ most iconic cities. San Francisco adds a sometimes epic scope to proceedings, and also suggests this could very well be a sequel as these pod-like otherworldly arrivals, with the ability to eerily clone human beings, have expanded beyond that initial and unlucky small town. »
