The Invasion (2007)

Another in a long line of remakes of Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

It only occurred to me as I was watching this iteration, but these are Zombie movies. And the thing about Zombie movies is: they scare me, and I like them.

Let me get this one thing out of the way: I really don’t like Nicole Kidman.

Let me get this other thing out of the way: Some stupid shit happens in this movie. (The CDC guy is a fracking maroon. And you remember how 28 Weeks Later was grim? The Invasion isn’t.)

Now, this is another one of those bastard movies that isn’t necessarily good, but isn’t even remotely as bad as I expected – in fact it was quite entertaining, and… yes… I liked it. In fact I think I don’t even hate Nicole Kidman anymore.

If you’re at a loose end of an evening you could do much worse, but if you’re going to risk it you’d better move quickly as The Invasion will be beating a hasty retreat from theaters in 3… 2…

  1. I’ve never been a Nicole Kidman fan either. She just looks so serious. No fun at all.

    I don’t think you can go past the 1978 remake, with Donald Sutherland. I saw it late at night on TV once and it freaked me out in the best way.

  2. Oh not just me then.
    I can’t stand Nicole Kidman. She’s so ….. stiff? I guess that’s the word for it.
