Invasion of the Body Snatchers


Dir. Don Siegel USA 1956 80 mins (PG)

The classic of cold war paranoid cinema as good Americans are taken over by aliens from another world. Dr Miles Bennell is inundated by  patients who think their loved ones are not the people they knew and are impostors. He can find nothing wrong with the ‘imposters’ but slowly he realised something is not right and then he finds evidence of the invaders. Can he warn the world in time?

Fast paced, dark and terrifying.
