Abel Ferrara's Body Snatchers is the third screen version of Jack Finney's cold war science fiction novel Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Marty Malone (Gabrielle Anwar) is moving with her father, stepmother, and stepbrother to a military base where her father will investigate possible environmental and ecological problems. Before they get to town, Marty is warned in a gas station restroom by a crazed looking military man that, "They get you when you sleep!" Marty adjusts to life on the base by flirting with a young officer and making friends with the rebellious daughter of the base commander. These friends help her when a plot by aliens to turn all humans into unemotional, unfeeling "pod people" shifts into high gear. As her family and friends are attacked, Marty doesn't know who to trust. Previous versions of his story were directed by Don Siegel (1956) and Phillip Kaufman (1978).~Perry Seibert

Rated 3 out of 5 stars
As a fan of the Original Invasion of the Body Snatchers & the 1978 ensemble cast remake of it, this one doesn't rank very high as a "Re-Make". While it isn't bad per se, it isn't that good either. It does have a few memorable moments. Such moments include Meg Tilly's character's chilling speech about where her family is going to go & Forrest Whittiker's frantic realization of what's happening.
Overall, this is a middle of the road horror/sci-fi
I would recommend this to a friend

Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3 is put in all the cases!
Posted . Owned for 2 weeks when reviewed.
I've purchased 2 of these and they both came with Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3 in them. I think all the cases have the wrong disc on them. It's not a double sided disc. Theres no option on the main menu screen for Body Snatchers.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend
