Overview

Invasion of the Body Snatchers starring Kevin McCarthy and Dana Wynter is one of the most revered films in international film history. For many critics it began the serious cycle of science fiction films that now include Alien and Blade Runner. Thanks to the novel by Jack Finney, the screenplay by Daniel Mainwaring and especially the direction of Don Siegel, Invasion runs on television somewhere virtually every day. This original book brings together interviews with Kevin McCarthy and Dana Wynter and also includes pieces by Dean Koontz (the introduction), Stephen King (an essay); and interviews with Philip Kaufman, who directed the 1978 remake; Robert H. Solo, who produced the remake; W. D. Richter, who wrote the remake; and Abel Ferrara, who directed the 1997 remake. Packed with insights into the production of a classic film, filled with moments of humor and a few moments of angst, and as entertaining as a behind the scenes look at the movie business. Join us in this tribute to Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

Reviews

While the film is rightly credited with reflecting the anticommunist paranoia of the fifties, the novel's mood is different. It is more a cerebral science-fictional mystery. -Jon L. Breen from his essay, The Fiction of Jack Finney When I saw the first version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, directed by Don Siegel, I was only a kid, but I knew it contained more truth than any movie I had ever seen before. -Dean Koontz from his Introduction The gross-out level is one thing, but it is on that second level of horror that we often experience that low sense of anxiety which we call the creeps. Over the years, Invasion of the Body Snatchers has given a lot of people the creeps. -Stephen King from his essay, Invasion of the Body Snatchers
