Invasion of the Body Snatchers is the 1978 remake of the classic science fiction thriller, brought to modern life this time by acclaimed director Philip Kaufman (The Right Stuff, The Unbearable Lightness of Being). Set this time out in modern day San Francisco, this version centers around Department of Health inspector Matthew Bennell (Donald Sutherland, MASH, Animal House, Klute, Ordinary People, Don't Look Now) starts to notice of rash of odd behaviors in the city: people are starting to suspect that their loved ones and relatives aren't really their loved ones and relatives; that they're imposters. When his co-worker (and unrequited love interest) Elizabeth Driscoll (Brooke Adams, The Dead Zone) has a similar notion about her dentist boyfriend Geoffrey (Art Hindle, Black Christmas, The Brood), Matthew springs into action to help her solve her dilemma.
