Body Snatchers - how many remakes and which do you recommend

Postby FPiX on Tue Oct 16, 2007 1:55 pm

Just watched "The Invasion" (2007 version with Nicole Kidman). Didn't think it was too bad, although not particularly good either, and the ending was dreadful.

I fancy watching one of the earlier versions, but I'm not really into 1950s B&W movies. Is the 1978 or the 1993 remake the one to watch?

'78 one with Donald Sutherland, Veronica Cartwright, Leonard Nimoy, Jeff Goldblum.. is my fav and I dare say most agree ;)

Well, in that case:
CLICK!
Still showing sources, thanks guys!

Is it worth me posting a link to the TS of the new one I just watched? It's apparently been nuked for having several missing sections of video where the cammer covers up the camera.
