Invasion of the Body Snatchers (20-Dec-1978)

Director: Philip Kaufman

Writer: W. D. Richter

From short story: The Body Snatchers by Jack Finney

Music by: Denny Zeitlin

Producer: Robert H. Solo

Keywords: Sci-Fi/Horror, Alien Invasion

Alien seed pods land near San Francisco, appearing as unusual plants. Elizabeth Driscoll notices her boyfriend, Geoffrey Howell, appears superficially the same but lacks emotion; she suspects he is a different person entirely. Others start noticing similar replacements; many seem brainless but worryingly, some are smarter. Good remake of the classic Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956), less political and more paranoid.
