Last Last Post Of October (Movie Review)

Retro-Movie Review: The Invasion of The Body Snatchers (1978)
First let me start by saying the Invasion of the Body Snatchers is better than Invasion. Now I don't want to spoil anything for anyone that hasn't seen it yet. It stars Donald Sutherland and Brooke Adams, playing two Public Health Officials in San Francisco. Basically, alien pods link up to people then "hatch" replicas. The movie also features Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park, The Fly), Veronica Cartwright (Alien) and Leonard Nimoy. Overall it was creepy and a pretty satisfying movie.

Acting: 7/10
Story: 9/10
Atmosphere: 10/10
Overall: 9/10
Rated 14-A (ONT) PG (USA)

P.S. Have a happy Halloween!
