Invasion of the Body Snatchers Blu-Ray + DVD Combo Review

Invasion of the Body Snatchers Blu-Ray + DVD Combo Review

Synopsis: When filmy spores fall from space and take root in San Francisco, the city is beautifully transformed by spectacular and exotic flowers. But these lovely extraterrestrial blossoms have gruesome plans for their earthly admirers: to slowly clone their bodies and then dispose of the originals! "A first-rate suspense thriller" (Newsday), this sci-fi adventure is a "chilling" (Leonard Maltin), "dazzling" (The New York Times) and "stunning" (Cosmopolitan) thrill ride that will send your pulse rate soaring! From a brilliant screenplay by Academy Award® nominee* W.D. Richter, filmmaker Philip Kaufman directs an all-star cast that includes Donald Sutherland, Jeff Goldblum, Brooke A`dams and Leonard Nimoy. With its mesmerizing style and awe-inspiring special effects, Invasion of the Body Snatchers is "a classic of the genre" (New York Post) a terrifying tale that "literally chills the blood" (The Hollywood Reporter)!

Review: There are a lot of versions of this film, all based on the classic novel.   This version is the now classic 1978 version.  Its coming to blu-ray for the first time, just in time for Halloween!  The cast of this film is amazing, it includes everyone from Leonard Nimoy and Jeff Goldblum to Donald Sutherland.

The transfer onto blu-ray high-definition actually looks really great for such an old film!  This is the classic tale of the pod people that come to earth in search of a new world and infest its inhabitants.   The acting is fantastic and the script is great.  This is a wonderful cult classic to enjoy this Halloween season!
