Invasion Of The Body Snatchers 1978 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
In Santa Mira (derived from Sierra Madre, where the film was shot) is Miles Bennell, a doctor. The film opens with his acknowledgment, on an “ordinary” day, of a rather noticeable coincidence: many of his patients called desperately and impatiently for appointments - and later, without reason, calmly announced their renewed health. After six such episodes on the same day, Miles becomes briefly suspicious.
Later, Miles sees a local friend who demandingly claims that her uncle, simply, is not her uncle. A boy, brought to Miles’ practice, makes a similar claim: that his mother is not his mother. In each case the “missing” person is discerned by intuition; they lack some indefinable human quality that, as we will learn, is what makes them human.
Finally, in an especially disturbing scene, Miles is called to a neighbor’s house. Inside is a body is on a billiards table. It is not a corpse, per se; the body displays no evidence of past life. Further curious, this person just appeared on this table, for no reason, and is not recognized by anyone in the city’s diminutive population. To further mystify the occurrence, the body has all the human features and no identifying details, no hair, and, more mysterious, no fingerprints.
Great old horror/sci-fi movie that’s completely a classic. If you haven’t seen it, I must recommend it for this movie paved the way for a lot of stuff we watch today. The story is awesome, the acting is above average, there’s nothing bad about this movie. It’s in black and white but shot professionally for the time. This is a must see, fo sho homies.
