    LOVE this movie!

    This one is an original, 1950's-era classic. LOTS of people have tried over the years to imitate movies like this one, and some have done good work, but no one will ever surpass them -- ever.

    Nightmare on Planet Earth

    At or, at least, near the top of the list of the scariest movies I have ever seen, this is the first and by far the best version of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers." Don Siegel's direction is sparse and pulls no punches. It is aided by a tense score, but it's the story more than anything else that stands out in this film.<BR/><BR/>Paranoia is rampant throughout this terrifying sci-fi tale. The scariest scene occurs when Kevin McCarthy and Dana Wynter, who are the only two humans left in Santa Mira, flee the pod people and take refuge in an abandoned mine just outside of town. Hidden under some wooden planks that cover a trench that they are lying in, McCarthy and Wynter successfully evade their pursuers. Later, after the pod people have left the cave, McCarthy relaxes with relief for the first time since his nightmare began, languidly kisses Wynter, and, to his horror, realizes the true nature of his predicament. The look on his face tells it all.<BR/><BR/>Rife with paranoia and existential alienation, this film is a classic tale of one man's fight against the overwhelming forces of an invading army bent on destroying him, bent on destroying any and all who are different than them. In short, this movie is as good as it gets.<BR/><BR/>--Bryan Cassiday, author of "Fete of Death"

    SCARY

    invasion of the body snatchers is one of the best sci-fi movies of the 50s. It has a great cast and a creepy story. It's also really fun to watch this movie at night. Truly underrated.

    The best B-Movie ever made according to Mr. Jasin.

    This was a great movie. It had action and a great plot. It is also very educational. Everyone should know what to do if pods fell out of the sky and transformed into any physical form of life when you fell asleep. It even made some people scream. And SOME PEOPLE even held onto a table leg because they were so scared.

    Great movie with the world's finest woman.

    Great sci-fi almost as good as the day the earth stood still. I think Dana Wynter is the most beautiful female ever to grace this planet.
