||The Best SF Movie Ever Made|
By Best I mean, of course, my favorite science fiction movie. This was directed by Don Siegel (who also directed "Dirty Harry," among others!) and if you look quickly you can catch a glimpse of San Peckinpah as the parking inspector. And, yes, he's the same Sam Peckinpah who wen on to direct "The Wild Bunch" and "Ride the High Country." This is a classic SF movie that works in spite of a an almost complete lack of special effects and a studio imposed ending that was a little softer and more hopeful than the writer and director intended. A paranoid classic.
By Brian (Perth, Australia)
This movie scared the hell out of me when I saw it at the movies in 1956. It is still scary today. Kevin McCarthy's signature role. Don't watch this movie alone! Highly recommended.

||The Best Of The Series!!|
I'd watch this with "The Invasion" w/ Daniel Craig and Nichole Kidman just for contrast but, this one is timeless!! Way better than the 70's version w/ Donald Sutherland which is a remake!!

||The PODS grew up!|
I saw this movie when I was eight years old. I'm surprised my dad took me, but he was a Sci-Fi fan just like me! Forbidden Planet, The Day The Earth Stood Still, The Thing, and Body Snatchers are ALL masterpieces not to be duplicated. Younger viewers who have haven't had the pleasure of seeing a truly suspenceful, scary movie WITHOUT outlandish special effects MUST see this film. I live not far from Sierra Madre. Everytime I drive to that lovely little city.... I roll up my windows....and watch people VERY closely!

||Highly Recommended...a true classic|
This is one of my favorites and in my opinion, a contender for the number one classic of this period and genre. Interestingly, there is very little in the way of special effects (just some rubber seed pods and mannequins). All of the insidious malevolence is developed by dialog, body language and music. The cast is excellent...period. I am always particularly saddened when Becky Driscoll (Dana Wynter) is taken over by the alien force, because she will never again be a loving woman and because she is so damn pretty (what a loss). Also, the battle against falling asleep waged by Kevin McCarthy adds a very unique dimension to this struggle. The movie then concludes with unique and truly memorable ending.
