Body Snatchers

The same, only different.

A third retelling of the tale about pod people replacing humans, this early ’90s flick transports the creepy happenings from sunny California to a military base deep in the South.

Director Abel Ferrara, coming off a one-two whammy of King of New York and Bad Lieutenant, does a great job of acknowledging the Invasion films which came before, while staking out his own chunk of film turf.

Gabrielle Anwar and Forest Whitaker are among those bedeviled by the alien invaders, but it’s Meg Tilly, wailing like a bloodthirsty banshee, who will keep you up at night.
