Classic Movie 2020

Classic Movie Of The Week: Invasion of the Bodysnatchers (1956)

Starring: Kevin McCarthy, Dana Wynter,

Director: Don Siegel

The original classic horror story about the slow replacement of people with pod people…. emotionless, alien clones of their real selves. While it spawned a popular remake in the 70’s, and several other remakes besides, we look at the original adaptation in all it’s black and white, B movie glory, and why it continues to chill viewers to this day….

  1. This is (remains) one of my three favorite films from that era. The other two are: “The Blob” with Steve McQueen and “The Day the Earth Stood Still” with Michael Rennie. All three are now considered “classics”.
