Invasion of the Body Snatchers Directed by Don Siegel
How excellent it is, and how ahead of its time, even with the tacked-on bookends and VO. I was watching it and I could sort of see the original, bleaker version THROUGH the re-edit, and it damn well nearly moved me to tears.

Over half a century old, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, with its grim stiffness, its small town modesty, the clash of the banal and the absurd, has not lost once frame of its ability to chill. Despite the seeming irrelevance of the generic Communist allegory driving it forward, its fear is still palpable, its swallowed panic infectious, and its America far in period but not in mindset of ours today.

Now here’s a proper scarer, still potent after nearly 60 years. Don Siegel’s science-fiction chiller deserves its classic status, with its tale of alien replicas hatching out of pods and replacing small-town Californians. There are several reasons for the film’s success: taut direction, the lack of overtly weird effects and atmospherics, Kevin McCarthy’s authoritative lead, and a magnificently ambivalent ending (given a grimmer tweak in Philip Kaufman’s 1978 version, the best of three remakes).
