Something evil has taken possession of the small town of Santa Mira, California. Hysterical people accuse their loved ones of being emotionless imposters; of not being them selves. At first, Dr. Miles Bennell (Kevin McCarthy) tries to convince them they're wrong ...but they're not. Plant-like extraterrestrials have invaded Earth, replicating the villagers in giant seed "pods" and taking pose ssion of their souls while they sleep. Soon the entire town is overwhelmed by the inhuman horror, but it won't stop there. In a te rrifying race for his life, Dr. Bennell escapes to warn the world of the deadly invasion of the pod people! Remade in both 1978 and 1997, this chillign combination of extraterrestrial terror and anti-conformity paranoia is considered one of the great cult classic s of hte genre!
