Invasion of the Body Snatchers

Year: 1978
Production Co: Solofilm
Studio: United Artists
Director: Philip Kaufman
Writer: Jack Finney
Cast: Donald Sutherland, Brooke Adams, Jeff Goldblum, Leonard Nimoy
As I write this review I haven't seen the classic original of this movie, this is the 1978 Philip Kaufman remake.

The paranoid allegory about the Red invasion is intact as an alien force gradually replaces people with automaton clones of themselves, and Donald Sutherland becomes more suspicious and paranoid as time goes on.

In late 70s political thriller fashion, happy endings are for pussies and a cloned Sutherland's angered scream giving Brooke Adams away as being still human is creepy enough in itself. Little gore but a chilled tone make in an effective horror movie with a difference.
