We continue to countdown your favorite horror films of the 1970s in this week's installment of #ilovethe70s by revealing your favorites ranked 40 through 21 (a DOUBLE countdown) before moving into an extended discussion of Philip Kaufman's 1978 film INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS. Considered one of the greatest remakes in cinema history, this film is not only a powerfully effective story of paranoia and social distress, but is a remarkable allegory for the tension between unity and conformity. Nathan and Reed try to wrestle down all of the many things the film makes them think and feel in a hefty, hearty conversation we hope you all enjoy.
