Invasion of the Body Snatchers
Dr. Miles Bennell (Kevin McCarthy) is investigating cases of people suffering paranoid delusions of loved ones being impostors. As he looks deeper into these cases, he finds something that could be a reason for the delusions.
Oh geez, this scared the crap out of me. Like The Day the Earth Stood Still, another 1950's sci-fi movie that has stood the test of time, Invasion of the Body Snatchers speaks of the time of paranoia from the Red Scare. And again, it scared the crap out of me. Impressive for a 55-year-old film with an 80-minute running time.
My Rating: *****
