Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) (PG)
It is Sci-Fi July at the ESQUIRE THEATRE!
The Fourth film in our CLASSIC SC-FI Series is 1956's INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS
"Something is happening! Send your men of science quick!" The panic stricken cry went over the phone to Washington D. C. until the lines went dead!......
Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes with a 98%, the Critics Consensus: One of the best political allegories of the 1950s, Invasion of the Body Snatchers is an efficient, chilling blend of sci-fi and horror.
Director Don Siegel's thinly-veiled examination of McCarthy-era hysteria stars Kevin McCarthy (no relation) as Miles Bennell, a California doctor who arrives at a San Francisco hospital in near-hysterical condition, raving about an alien invasion. His story, told in flashback, focuses on Bennell's home in tiny Santa Mira, where he discovers an alien plot to take over earth by methodically replacing humankind with zombie-like pod people.
