REVIEWS

“Out of all of the versions of Invasion of the Body Snatchers […] the ending [of Ferrara’s film is] most terrifying, because what wins out is not the unthinking alien force, but the human capacity for evil. Humanity’s persistence is more horrifying than its defeat.”
– Ignatiy Vishenvetsky, Mubi

“Most important, for a horror film, there are scenes of genuine terror. One shot in particular, involving a helicopter, is as scary as anything in The Exorcist or Silence of the Lambs. And the fright is generated, not by the tired old slasher trick of having someone jump out of the screen, but by the careful establishing of situations in which we fear, and then our fears are confirmed.”
– Roger Ebert
