Invasion of the Body Stealers
28 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is Patrick Allen, not George Sanders, who is the playboy.

Actors on the way down (George Sanders, Maurice Evans), an actor who never really had much of a career (Neil Connery--Sean's brother), and working actors treading water (Patrick Allen, Robert Flemyng).

The film is indeed a big snooze, with meager science-fiction trappings and a disinterested cast going through the motions.

Aliens kidnap skydivers to repopulate their plague-stricken planet. Theater owners probably had to kidnap patrons! Originally on a double bill with THE BLOOD ROSE, a French production advertised as 'the first sex- horror film.'

Shelagh Fraser ("Mrs. Thatcher") appears as Aunt Beru in STAR WARS.
