  • Invasion of the Body Snatchers

    Invasion of the Body Snatchers 1978

    ★★★★★ Added

    Donald Sutherland hunts for rat turds, Brooke Adams stalks her boyfriend, it takes Jeff Goldblum six months to write a line sometimes, and Leonard Nimoy thinks they’re all full of shit. Oh yeah, and the world is overrun by pod people who look just like us, but aren’t. It happens when we sleep, see.

Includes some great over-the-top screeching and excessive-hand-action martial arts action sequences, an awesome team gathering montage plus some of the greatest bellbottom jeans this side of 1979, KILL AND KILL AGAIN is everything any fan could want from a non-Hong Kong made chop sockey masterpiece. Stars James Ryan and former Miss World 1974 Anneline Kriel (the events surrounding her crowning and aftermath are fascinating if anyone can be bothered reading about them on wikipedia)
