“There’s nothing to be afraid of. They were right. It’s painless. It’s good. Come. Sleep.”

Remake. Say the word and you’ll no doubt spark a conversation about the death of originality in Hollywood and how brand recognition is more important than storytelling. While it’s easy to throw up half-hearted retreads like Total Recall (2012), RoboCop (2014), and Point Break (2015) as reasons to banish the remake altogether, there are a few great remakes that are arguably better than their predecessors. 1978’s Invasion Of The Body Snatchers kicked off a decade of great remakes, including John Carpenter’s The Thing (1982), Brian De Palma’s Scarface (1983), David Cronenberg’s The Fly (1986), and Chuck Russell’s The Blob (1988).

31 Days of Horror Banner

Hello Geeks and Ghouls, Famous Monster here. Well, it’s finally October and you know what that means? Breast Cancer Awareness 5Ks? Good guess. Pumpkin Spice Lattes? Delicious, but no. Halloween? YES. Horror movies? DOUBLE YES!

Welcome to 31 Days of Horror, where I’ll cover at least two noteworthy horror films a day for the entirety of the month. That’s 31 Days of Horror and 62+ scary movies perfect for a cold, dark October night. Be sure to visit Geeks of Doom every day this month for a double-shot of chills and thrills!

Today’s double-shot features a creature that gestates inside a living human host and has concentrated acid for blood, and gelatinous space aliens that have a penchant for snatching bodies. Actually, both of these films feature space aliens that LOVE Veronica Cartwright, apparently. After the jump, I’ll be discussing Ridley Scott‘s 1979 film, Alien, and Philip Kaufman‘s 1978 remake, Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
