Amidst the camp and crop of 1950’s aliens-are-invading sci-fi (which I love), there are a few that genuinely stand out. Perhaps it was because of the red-scare where even YOUR neighbor could be a Ruskie, or perhaps it was because of increasing of public unconsciousness in the dawn of technology, but “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” is on top of it’s genre. Dr. Miles Bennell (Kevin McCarthy) is being held and tells a wild story of seedpods and ‘blank’ people -cultivated to replace real people. We never find out what happens to the real people, and that amplifies the creepiness.
Awf Hand give four out of four stars and observes: if you like this movie, you’ll enjoy “Shawn of the Dead” (2004) for different, yet similar reasons.
