Invasion of the Body Snatchers Takes Your Breath Away in 4K – Review
Kino Lorber has released on of my favorite horror/thriller film. The 1973 film has come to 4K.
I can’t think of a better ensemble cast in a horror film like Invasion of the Body Snatchers
While watching the film in 4K and I was blown away by the sound. Yes, The picture looks amazing, but the sound is what took my breath away. Especially the sequences with the alien pods replicating the people. The sound is so creepy and that’s amplified by the sound.
Scenes with lots of conversations at the same time, like the one in the bookstore, really show off the range. I could hear so many different elements that I had not heard before.
From acclaimed filmmaker Philip Kaufman (The Wanderers) comes this chilling ’70s adaptation of Jack Finney’s classic novel The Body Snatchers. Filmy spores fall from space over San Francisco, and the city blossoms with beautiful new flora. People take the flowers home and, as they sleep, the plants creep over them, devouring their bodies and stealing their identities—their emotions, their uniqueness, their souls. If you notice an eerie change in someone very close to you, chances are you’re next! More than just a highly effective sci-fi thriller, Invasion of the Body Snatchers treats contemporary problems of urban paranoia and loss of individuality with intelligence and sensitivity… and ends with the single most horrifying frame in movies. Featuring a brilliant screenplay by W.D. Richter (Big Trouble in Little China), gritty camerawork by Michael Chapman (Raging Bull) and awe-inspiring special effects, Invasion of the Body Snatchers is a pulse-pounding shocker with wonderful performances by Donald Sutherland (The Puppet Masters), Brooke Adams (The Dead Zone), Leonard Nimoy (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan), Jeff Goldblum (The Fly) and Veronica Cartwright (Alien).
