Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

When multiple residents of a small Californian town begin to suffer from identical frenzied delusions, Dr Miles Bennell (Kevin McCarthy) suspects the community is in the grip of a new kind of epidemic. But his investigations soon reveal the terrifying truth – uncovering not a medical emergency, but a hidden extraterrestrial invasion that threatens mankind’s very existence.

Directed by Don Siegel (Dirty Harry), this milestone of science fiction taps into the paranoia and uncertainty of its times to present a chilling critique of post-war American society. Invasion of the Body Snatchers remains an enduring and suspenseful classic, prepare to experience the thrills and horrors of this highly influential movie like never before.
