Remaking Fear: Evolution of the Body Snatchers on Vimeo now

24 April 2018

Peet Gelderblom’s latest video essay, Remaking Fear: Evolution of the Body Snatchers is available on Vimeo.

You may remember our review of the two very different versions of Brian De Palma’s Raising Cain. The person responsible for the director’s cut was another director, the Dutch filmmaker Peet Gelderblom.

A major fan of the Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Peet has intercut all four versions arguing why the story is still so potent set in such different time periods. The intercutting is between the original (Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Don Siegel, 1956) and its three remakes (1978, 1993 and 2007). It’s a terrific watch for fans and anyone interested in the series' many readings and the art of fear in cinema. Cunningly edited to take in all four narratives, the 47-minute video essay is a compelling work and well worth you checking out.

The film premiered at the Imagine Film Festival in Amsterdam this April and is currently promoted by RogerEbert.com. On Peet’s Directorama Vimeo page, there are other video essays, again well worth your time.
