“They’re here already! You’re next! You’re next!” One of the greatest and most influential sci-fi films of all time stars Kevin McCarthy as Miles Bennell, a doctor in the small California town of Santa Mira, whose patients are becoming hysterical and accusing their loved ones of becoming emotionless imposters. Is this just a case of 1950s suburban paranoia, or is something more sinister afoot? One guess! As the cases of personality disorder increase, the shocking truth is revealed: plant-like extra-terrestrials have invaded Earth, replicating the residents of Santa Mira in giant seed pods and taking possession of their souls while they sleep. Realizing that the epidemic is out of control, in a terrifying race for his life, Miles joins forces with his ex-girlfriend Becky Driscoll (Dana Wynter) and tries to escape to warn the world of the deadly invasion of the pod people! Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Don Siegel (Dirty Harry) and co-starring Carolyn Jones, Larry Gates and King Donovan, Invasion of the Body Snatchers is still guaranteed to make you question your neighbors and lose more than a little sleep. Remade in 1978, 1997 and 2007. (Dir. by Don Siegel, 1956, USA, 80 mins., Not Rated)
