Very scary until it cops out at the end, with the human race tritely and miraculously saved. As I recall, the 1956 original ends with no hope in sight and mankind apparently doomed. Here the filmmakers didn't have the guts to wipe humanity out, 'for better or worse.' Nevertheless, this remake has its pluses. It does a good, skillful job incrementing the takeover, so that we can't even tell at what point the pods reach critical mass. The best scenes are when the few remaining humans try to hide in plain sight from the pod people while sharing in passing whispers to uninfected strangers what they've figured out about the invasion ("don't show any emotion" - "don't go to sleep.") These scenes were moving, sad, and scary add-ons to the '56 classic.
Correction: I just watched the original and it does end with an ambiguous glimmer of hope for mankind -- or will the doctor in the next town have the same zero luck with the FBI as Kevin McCarthy did?
