Tobe Hooper's take on Invasion of the Body Snatchers is an ambitiously zany 80s spectacle of cheese. A light hearted suburban nightmare that's highlighted by dramatic performances and endearing practical FX. A low key 80s gem!
After David witnesses a bizarre object land in his backyard everyone around him starts acting strangely. And why do they all have a mysterious marking on the back of their necks? First his parents, then his teachers will David be next???
There's lots to enjoy here. Karen Black's dramatically campy performance, the rubbery and gooey alien designs, the retro sci-fi meets 80s horror vibes, imaginative settings and endless charm.
A perfect Sunday afternoon kinda film.
