Invasion of the Body Snatchers

 (1978)

When filmy sprees fall from space and take root in San Francisco, the city is beautifully transformed by spectacular and exotic flowers. But these lovely extra-terrestrial blossoms have gruesome plans for their Earthly admirers: to slowly clone their bodies- and then dispose of the originals!

Invasion of the Body Snatchers Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Cinematographer Michael Chapmin gave Invasion of the Body Snatchers a murky, moody, shadow-covered color film-noir look, and this 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer from MGM reproduces that style nicely. As a fairly low budget catalog title from the late '70s, you can't expect crystal clarity, but if you're familiar with the film's collector's edition DVD release from 2007, you'll recognize the refinement in resolution immediately. Yes, there are soft shots, and even whole sequences, but fine detail is much more apparent, especial in close-ups of the half-formed Pod People, covered in a mix of ooze and tendril-like, individually discernable hairs. Color is pretty consistent with film stocks of the time, with a realistic, slightly muted quality that occasionally gives way to vivid primaries—especially reds. Likewise, contrast is a bit on the flat side and black levels—in the darker scenes—have a tendency to look slightly grayish and crush shadow detail. The oppressive shadows are definitely part of the film's intended look, but you will notice a mix of heavy grain and mild compression noise during nighttime sequences. Still, this is vastly preferable to DNR smearing, of which there's no evidence here. The film looks its age, but I wouldn't have it look any other way.


Invasion of the Body Snatchers Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

It has to be said: For a 1970s sci-fi film, Invasion of the Body Snatchers' sound design is excellent! The movie was among the first to use Dolby mixing/mastering, and you can tell that a great deal of thought went into making the sound effects as unsettling as possible, from raspy breathing and oozy squishes to the Pod People's unmistakable shriek. Everything is clean and well-balanced, and the rear channels get a surprising amount of action, with frequent ambience filling all channels and occasional directional effects, like a pair of motorcycles zipping past us. Even the .1 LFE channel gets more than a few chances to rumble, adding menace to the scene. Denny Zeitlin's largely electronic score is fantastic as well, and sounds great here, with presence and nice separation between instruments. Dialogue is balanced and understandable throughout, and English SDH, French, and Spanish subtitles are available in easy-to-read white lettering.
