Competition: ‘Invasion of the Body Snatchers’ *closed*

Cult specialists Arrow Video are pleased to announce the highly anticipated UK Blu-ray release of 1978’s Invasion of the Body Snatchers. The deluxe Blu-ray set will be available to own in a limited edition steelbook showcasing the original poster design, as well as a standard edition case with newly illustrated artwork. To celebrate this release on Monday 18 November, we’ve kindly been offered THREE Blu-ray steelbook copies of Philip Kaufman’s paranoia-plagued sci-fi to give away to our readers, courtesy of Arrow Video. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

When health official Elizabeth Driscoll (Brooke Adams) notices that her lover has become strangely distant, this sets in train a series of shocking discoveries that sees both her and colleague Matthew Bennell (Donald Sutherland) fleeing for their lives to the sound of ear-piercing alien screams. Remakes of great films are usually on a hiding to nothing, but Kaufman’s brilliant update of the 1956 classic is a rare and memorable exception. Transposing the action to the heart of San Francisco allows Kaufman to retain all the suspense of Jack Finney’s original story while adding caustic social commentary about the selfishness of the seventies ‘me generation’ that remains all too relevant today.

To be in with a chance of winning one of THREE Blu-ray steelbook copies of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, just answer the following simple question:

Which Australian actress starred in 2007’s The Invasion, the most recent remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

a) Abbie Cornish

b) Nicole Kidman
c) Naomi Watts
