Invasion of the Body Snatchers (5-Feb-1956)|
Director: Don Siegel
Writer: Daniel Mainwaring
From short story: The Body Snatchers by Jack Finney
Keywords: Sci-Fi/Horror, Alien Invasion
Dr. Miles Bennell is recalled from a medical conference after distraught patients complain their loved ones have been replaced by impostors devoid of emotion. At first blush it seems to be mass hysteria, but an increasing body of physical evidence points to alien seed pods usurping their human hosts as they sleep. Stay awake! Captures the paranoia of the Cold War and McCarthy eras. Entered 1994 into the National Film Registry. Remade as Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978).
