Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) could easily have been retitled “Leonard Nimoy’s Poor Fashion Sense”

January 18, 2013


The 1970s Invasion of the Body Snatchers remake has a lot going for it, including a lot of takeaway scenes, any of which can be brought to the mental fore by seeing the poster above. Maybe you remember the odd Robert Duvall cameo in the beginning, Donald Sutherland dozing off and being slowly replicated or the bleak, gutsy ending. Me? The first thing I think of is Leonard Nimoy’s god-awful ’70s jacket, which looked to have been tailored from couch upholstery. Or really awful curtains that smell like stale cigarette smoke. That was the real horror. (The red turtleneck that went with it — or didn’t, as it were — wasn’t much help.)
