Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978)

United Artists
Directed by Philip Kaufman
My rating: 3 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia
(Blu-ray, MGM/Fox)

Health inspector Donal Sutherland, with the help of lab assistant Brooke Adams, slowly realizes that San Francisco is being overrun by aliens. Friends and neighbors are being replaced with doppelgangers grown in pods while they sleep. The emotionless doubles point out people who have not been replaced with horrifying screams. Pretty good remake is just a notch below the original, with its star Kevin McCarthy making a brief appearance. Excellent soundtrack by Denny Zeitlin, his only one, makes full use of surround sound.
