Critic Reviews of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers"Washington PostOctober 17, 2016
It's interesting to observe how Kaufman and screenwriter W.D. Richter contrive to exploit and refine elements from both Finney's novel and Siegel's film in the new movie version, an unusually imaginative and adroit but also self-conscious remake.Wall Street JournalOctober 23, 2010
Gives remakes a good name.TIME MagazineOctober 22, 2010
This film wants to have it both ways: to have a more urbane, more "important" scope than the original, and yet retain some of its inexpensive intimacy as well.VarietyMarch 26, 2009
Invasion of the Body Snatchers validates the entire concept of remakes.AV ClubSeptember 01, 2007
Set at the intersection of post-Vietnam paranoia and the myopic introspection that became hippiedom's most lasting cultural contribution, the Philip Kaufman-directed Invasion alternates social commentary with impeccably crafted scares.Chicago ReaderMay 30, 2007
Ideas that Siegel knocked off in a few shots are expanded to fill entire sequences -- but they're good ideas, and can stand a little stretching.Cinema CrazedAugust 13, 2016
A remarkable science fiction tale that still stuns, baffles, and chills.Creative LoafingAugust 07, 2016
The 1956 Invasion of the Body Snatchers remains the best of the four adaptations, but this second take is similarly noteworthy and continues to grow in stature over the years.TheBluFile.comAugust 02, 2016
Emotionally stirring, visually striking and having not aged a day, "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" cries out for individuality in a skewed, nightmarish totalitarian reality. The results are as squirmily potent in 2016 as they no doubt were in 1978.People MagazineSeptember 28, 2015
Remakes of grand old films are to be discouraged, but director Philip Kaufman gets away with this one on style and verve.The SpectatorSeptember 28, 2015
All the tension and scariness of the original has gone and in its place is a bit of floppy old cabbage. See the Fifties version if you can.ColeSmithey.comAugust 05, 2014
[VIDEO ESSAY] Thematically, the film's allegory regarding viral-groupthink has plenty of wiggle-room for interpretation because it is so profoundly vague yet universal.
