100 Word Review – Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956)

Considered part of the Hollywood vs. McCarthyism debate, this film is best enjoyed on a much more basic level.

A doctor returns from a trip to find that the people in his small-town are being replaced by emotionless pod people.

When I say pod people, I mean it. They literally burst out of pods. It’s brilliant.

There’s a lot of the “women are need a man to help them” trope, but despite this it is still a remarkably watchable movie. I have watched this on my TV and on the big screen and it only gets better with every viewing.
