BODY SNATCHERS (1993) Reviews and overview

 

BodySnatchers

Body Snatchers is a 1993 American science fiction horror film and loosely based on the 1955 novel The Body Snatchers by Jack Finney. The film was directed by Abel Ferrara, starring Gabrielle Anwar, Billy Wirth, Terry Kinney, Meg Tilly, R. Lee Ermey and Forest Whitaker.

This is the third film adaptation of Finney’s novel, the first adaptation being Invasion of the Body Snatchers in 1956, followed by a remake of the same name in 1978.

The plot revolves around the discovery that people working at a military base in Alabama are being replaced by perfect physical imitations grown from plant-like pods. The duplicates are indistinguishable from normal people except for their utter lack of emotion…
