Terror Tuesday: Body Snatchers
The third take on the “body snatcher” movie is as worthy as its 1956 and 1978 predecessors, but rarely gets the attention it deserves. Director Abel Ferrara sets his on a military base in Alabama, with the focus on a family newly moved in. Teenage daughter Marti immediately feels something is off about many of the people, but when her step mother seems off, it is tough to tell if this is part of their already fraught relationship. Meg Tilly is effectively creepy as the step mom, and the creepiness of these pod people will have you looking deep into the eyes of everyone around you.
