Synopsis

"A science fiction horror fable… it may be the best film of its kind ever made!" – Pauline Kael, The New Yorker

Under cover of darkness, while an unsuspecting city sleeps, an alien life form begins to sow the seeds of unspeakable terror. Donald Sutherland, Brooke Adams, Leonard Nimoy, Veronica Cartwright and Jeff Goldblum star in this shocking, "first-rate suspense thriller" (Newsday).

One by one, the residents of San Francisco are becoming drone-like shadows of their former selves. As the phenomenon spreads, two Department of Health workers, Matthew (Sutherland) and Elizabeth (Adams), uncover the horrifying truth: Mysterious pods are cloning humans — and destroying the originals! The unworldly invasion grows stronger with each passing minute, hurling Matthew and Elizabeth into a desperate race to save not only their own lives, but the future of the entire human race.

Why We Love It

"The smart writing, Kaufman's almost hallucinogenic approach toward direction and the excellent performances make this that rare remake which is in its own way as memorable as the original. Technical merits are generally strong, and as tends to be the case, Scream Factory has provided some superb supplements. Highly recommended." – Jeffrey Kauffman, Blu-Ray

"All of that operatic, terrifying splendor screams off the screen in Scream Factory‘s sumptuous new Blu-ray Collector’s Edition. The first thing ardent fans of Body Snatchers will notice is just how gorgeous the film looks in High-Def, with details I’ve never noticed in the dozens of times I’ve seen the film. Like the tempra-paint consistency and color of blood coming from Goldblum’s nose, the textures in Sutherland’s wild hair, the deep blacks and warm tones of the eerie night sequences. This does not look like a near 40-year old film, this looks new, alive, urgent and absolutely breathtaking." – Chris Alexander, Coming Soon

"Shout! Factory Collector's Edition Blu-ray looks excellent to me in that it has richer colors, is darker with warmer skin tones, has more information in the frame and a consistent sheen of grain." – Gary Tooze, DVD Beaver

“A great movie, great presentation, stunning audio, and a wide variety of special features new and old: these are the hallmarks of a Scream Factory release and they’re here in spades for Invasion of the Body Snatchers.” – Joshua Jenkins, ReDVDit!

"If you have never seen this 1978 sci-fi/horror classic, then you must rectify that situation with this release.  The film has never looked or sounded better, thanks to the new 2K HD transfer." – Popcorn Nights

"Unsurprisingly, Scream Factory knocks another one out of the park with Invasion of the Body Snatchers on Blu-ray. Besides being an impeccably-made film, the transfer and the extras on this release are absolutely terrific, and any self-respecting genre fan should be picking it up. Highly recommended." – Tim Salmons, The Digital Bits
