In this second adaptation of Jack Finney's The Body Snatchers (1955), Matthew Bennell (Donald Sutherland), a public health inspector working in San Francisco, discovers that the human race is being replaced by alien doppelgängers that grow in vegetal pods. With the authorities compromised, Matthew is left to wonder which of his friends – including co-worker Elizabeth Driscoll (Brooke Adams), psychiatrist Dr David Kibner (Leonard Nimoy), writer Jack Bellicec (Jeff Goldblum) and his wife Nancy (Veronica Cartwright) – are no longer human. This remake of Don Siegel's 1956 film of the same name updates the Body Snatchers narrative for the paranoid post-Watergate years.
