classic!


Just recently bought the Val Lewton collection,working my way through it ,ive watched "ghost ship","leopard man","I walked with a zombie","isle of the dead" and the best so far(out of a great list) is "the body snatcher".Great all the way through,performances,mood ,suspence and a few quite shocking moments but the end was one of the best i have ever seen.An absolute classic ,cant believe i never seen it before.

It's a great film. I have stated previously that if I could only save five films to take to a desert island, or rescue from a fire, one would be "The Body Snatcher".

"Cat People" always gets the most attention and accolades among Lewton's films, but I'll always take "The Body Snatcher" for pure entertainment value.

I would agree. This is the best of Val Lewton's productions. Great atmosphere. great performances and great direction by Robert Wise.
