Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) is a suspenseful science fiction movie directed by Don Siegel. The film follows Dr. Miles Bennell, a small-town doctor in Santa Mira, California. Dr. Bennell discovers that alien spores have fallen from space and have begun replicating the bodies of his friends and neighbors. The replicants, or “pod people”, lack emotion, compassion, and free will; they are cold, unfeeling impostors of the humans they replace. Dr. Bennell and his girlfriend Becky Driscoll race to find an antidote and confront the alien menace before it is too late. In the end, Dr. Bennell is able to defeat the aliens and save the day. Invasion of the Body Snatchers is a classic tale of paranoia and suspense that is still as relevant today as it was in 1956.
