The Seed is Planted...Terror Grows.
This dazzling remake of the 1956 spine-tingler stars Donald Sutherland, Brooke Adams, Jeff Goldblum, Leonard Nimoy and Veronica Cartwright in an eerie tale of possession by "alien pods."

"...speaks to our national paranoia amd intrigues us with its craftiness.  Frederic & Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality & Practice
"...a very, very special film, a forgotten classic of the '70s cinema.  James Rocchi, NetFlix

Editor's Note
In this remake of the 1956 cult classic, terror slowly and silently strikes San Francisco as the city is mysteriously covered by alien spores that produce strangely beautiful flowers. Unbeknownst to the people, the flowers are the bearers of alien pods that make a spiderlike webbing that captures their victims as they sleep and replicates their human form. Although they still look human, the victims are transformed into emotionless creatures by a strange race of aliens out to consume and control humanity--and only four people are left to stop them. Donald Sutherland stars as Matthew Bennel, a Department of Health inspector whose close friend and coworker Elizabeth Driscoll (Brooke Adams) is overwhelmed by fear and paranoia when she begins to suspect her boyfriend, Geoffrey (Art Hindle), of no longer being human. Together, with their friends Jack (Jeff Goldblum) and Nancy (Veronica Cartwright), they are out to stop the bizarre alien invasion before they fall victim to the alien pods. Leonard Nimoy costars as Dr. David Kibner, a guru psychiatrist who might not be whom he seems. This haunting parable of human paranoia is a creepy glimpse of a city overrun with robotlike yuppies threatening to wipe out all of humankind. Sutherland gives a knockout performance as the leader of the last four humans left in San Francisco in this terrific blend of B-movie science fiction and modern terror.

DVD Town 9 of 10
Paranoia. Mass hysteria. Conformity. Cloning. Faddism. Brainwashing. Mind control. Communism. Witch hunts. These are just a few of the subjects touched upon in director Philip Kaufman's thought-provoking remake of the science-fiction classic, "Invasion of the Body Snatchers." Like its famous 1956 predecessor and its less well-known 1994 companion, "Body Snatchers," this 1978 film is topical and thematic. And it is damned scary...After you've seen the picture, you see pod people everywhere. It can make a genuine cynic of anyone...Space invaders don't always have to arrive in spectacular, melodramatic fleets of mile-wide starships a la "Independence Day." They can come quietly, secretly, like thieves in the night, and have us before we even know we're being taken. As I said, scary. - John J. Puccio
