Invasion of the Body Snatchers ★★★★

Reviewed as part of my Dreadit Top Horror Films by Decade – 2018 Challenge.

While not quite as powerful as the '78 remake, still a taut thriller with some excellent scenes. McCarthy and Wynter both give wonderful performances. While there are substantial similarities between the two versions, studio intervention gets in the way of the bleak ending, tacking on bookends that aren't really necessary. A shame because what would be the final scene is absolutely haunting.
