A brilliant sci-fi film that packs an above-average emotional punch for a 1950's sci-fi. When most sci-fi directors of the 50's were obsessed with bad creature effects, this film ramps up the tension and suspense into a terrifying climax.

I can see why a lot of people like this film. Its fun, and hasn't really dated. But i didn't love it personally. It just didn't grip me or interest me all that much. There wasn't a lot to grab hold of other than the story. Still, the best sci-fi film of the 50's remains Robert Wise's The Day the Earth Stood Still.

If you like good movies, you'll like Invasion of the Body Snatchers. If you like classic horror and sci fi films, you'll like Invasion! Out of the four Invasion movies, this one stands out far as the best, and it's the one that started it all.

Has to be one of the best sci-fi horrors of it's time all set around a doctor who soon realises his friends are not the same and his patients start to say there family members are inposters who he puts down as mad. Until one night when his firends show him a partly formed body they have uncovered in their home in the greenhouse, he begins to realize that there may be some truth to the wild stories he has been hearing. To hide out and not to fall asleep.

Invasion of the Body Snatchers review

"The world has gone crazy." One of the pioneering psychological science fiction that has been included by critics on their "best of movies" list. Dr. Dan Kauffman informs Miles that there is an epidemic of mass hysteria. Becky Driscoll and Dr. Miles Bennell has a dinner date while noticing people acting strangely. Miles sees a body double of Becky. Certain pods have been witnessed and certain speculations erupt. The score gives that the film the added suspense. Has a few insightful lines such as: "The mind is a strange and wonderful thing." "Love, desire, ambition, faith - without them, life's so simple, believe me." and "All of us, a little bit - we harden our hearts, grow callous. Only when we have to fight to stay human do we realize how precious it is to us, how dear." The fil...
