083: SFFCH – Invasion Of The Body Snatchers

083 Invasion of the Body Snatcers

Once again, it’s time for Jamie’s choice and he’s brought the excellent 1978 remake of ‘Invasion of the Body Snatchers’ in for Spoiler Filled Film Conversation Hooray! Listen in as Rich, Jamie and Ant chatter about the movie, despite not everyone having seen it, and ponder just why it was remade at all. As it turns out, Jamie and Ant both really liked this 1970s example of supreme cynicism and creepiness. Points of interest include the oddity of the human-face dog, the naturalistic performances, the ambiguity of Nimoy’s alien clone psychologist, and just what the target of the allegory might be in 1978 with McCarthyism but a distant memory. Also, what exactly was going on with the vibrating eye trick?!

Note: Rich has since seen it and gives it the thumbs up, thus proving he isn’t some kind of ¬†emotionless alien replica of a human. (Ep 83, Rec 2014)
