Once again, people are being replaced by soulless replicas that emerge from squishy alien pods. This time the setting is a U.S. Army base, where EPA scientist Steve Malone (Terry Kinney) arrives with his wife (Meg Tilly), their 5-year-old son (Reilly Murphy), and his teenage daughter (Gabrielle Anwar) from a previous marriage. Abel Ferrara’s direction is inky and somber, with some of the creeping bad-dream naturalism of George Romero’s Living Dead films. As pop sociology, this Body Snatchers is the skimpiest yet, but the special effects have a queasy originality (the pods sprout wormy tentacles that wrap around people’s faces), and Ferrara gets a quietly compelling performance out of Gabrielle Anwar.
