Invasion of the Body Snatchers is one of the best horror / thriller movies to come out of the 70s. While the original is a highly impressive movie, this is one of those films that fall into the rare category of having the sequel be better than the original. Donald Sutherland is great in this film and, while the film is a slow burner, it has so many chilling parts to it.
