Body horrors. Being copied then killed by your pod-birthed doppelganger or being impregnated by Satan then bearing his child. In both cases, you're not going to find many friends in the local community... I give this to 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers' largely because I don't rate Mia Farrow's performance. Rosemary's Baby is more horrifying, but Invasion is more inventive, dramatic and fun.

I've always found Rosemary's Baby rather off-putting, for whatever reason. I just don't like it very much. Invasion of the Body Snatchers is more my style, although I certainly wouldn't rate it a great film (it's merely decent).

Invasion was cleverer, more fun to sit through, and inventive; but I'm taking Rosemary's Baby because it's way more unsettling and deeper. I'd say Invasion message was pretty great though.

either way don't trust your neighbors
