Friday, October 25 Invasion of the Body Snatchers 1956 / 80 min. / NR
Something isn’t right in a small California town. The town doctor (Kevin McCarthy) becomes alarmed when several people report that a family member is not acting like themselves. The doctor investigates. He becomes convinced that an alien force is replacing townspeople with emotionless doppelgängers. Considered a masterpiece among horror films, Invasion has been seen by some as a metaphor for the effects of McCarthyism on Americans.
