Overview

Invasion of the Body Snatchers is one of the most ingenious and influential works of science fiction ever to "take over" the public imagination. Based on the 1955 novel The Body Snatchers by Jack Finney (author of the classic Time and Again), this classic tale of alienation, conformity, and political paranoia has inspired three motion pictures--and terrified three generations of fans. Now this fascinating companion volume--edited by Kevin McCarthy, the star of the original film, and Ed Gorman--explores the enduring power and popularity of The Body Snatchers phenomenon. Filled with photographs, interviews, personal commentaries, and behind-the scenes anecdotes--it is, at once, a tribute to director Don Siegel's 1956 film noir classic of Red Scare paranoia, a reassessment of the 1978 and 1997 remakes, and an homage to the brilliant fiction of author Jack Finney.
