Member Picks: Invasion of the Body Snatchers
When people go missing, supposedly replaced by clones, who can you trust?
Dir Don Siegel
With Kevin McCarthy, Dana Wynter, Larry Gates, King Donovan
In Santa Mira, California, there’s a panic brewing – people seem to be going missing, supposedly replaced by emotionless clones. Is this mass hysteria justified? Could it really be the beginning of an invasion that threatens the future of the planet? With themes of identity loss and post-war conformity, this sci-fi classic chimed with McCarthyite-era audiences.
