Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) was one of the most influential political science fiction movies ever made. It received no awards at the time, and yet decades later was honored, and has been remade three times.

Released during the Cold War, the movie is metaphorical against communism and the conspiratorial attempt by communists in America. The film was made in merely 23 days on a budget of only $380,000, yet its surrealism and creepiness influenced many other films.[1]

Kevin McCarthy (who also appeared decades later in a remake of it) and Dana Wynter starred.[2] During the shooting of the film the director secretly put one of the pods under her bed at night while she was sleeping, and she freaked out when she saw it there the next day.
