Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956)

I heard of this really scary movie called Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and I kept asking my Dad to see it. It was so scary that every minute, I almost jumped out of my seat.

It was about alien pods from outer space that replace every human's body. There was a doctor that was going crazy, because of all the shenanigans! He retells the story from the beginning of the movie. During the movie, the aliens were locked out of the room, and the doctor snuck up and put needles in them that made them fall asleep!

He and his girlfriend were the only ones left, until the girlfriend fell asleep, and became one of the aliens, too. At the end, the people that the doctor was telling the story to didn't believe him, until one of them came in and said that there was a truck with pods in it, coming from the town of Santa Mira (the same town he came from).

I liked it, because no one could trust anybody in the town, which made it extremely creepy. It was in black and white, like many of the best movies are. I didn't like the part when all of the doctor's friends turned into aliens, because that was a little bit sad, since he had no more friends left.

This is the first movie I'm reviewing for my blog. Thanks for reading my very first post.


  1. Hi Jack,

    Invasion of the Body Snatchers is a really good, and really scary movie. I was about your age when I first saw it.

    Great review. Keep up the good work!

  2. You're right, Jack, this movie really is extremely creepy. Great job reviewing it.

    I hope you keep writing, I'm excited to see what else you review!

  3. Jack -

    What an excellent first blog - if you keep writing, I'll keep reading!

    Can't wait to see your next review!

  4. Hi Jack!! I'm so happy you decided to follow in your dads awesome footsteps. Horror is such a great thing to love. I have to be honest... I'm 28 years old, and I've never seen the original Invasion of the Body Snatchers. So your a step ahead of me. ;)
    I can't wait to see what else you have to say.

  5. I'm so proud of you! Maybe next time we'll have to pick out a movie you're going to review and watch it together!

    (we now have PLENTY of popcorn!)

  6. Wonderful review Mr. Jack! I look forward to more. I haven't seen the original Invasion since I was probably your age. I should watch it again soon! Keep up the good work!

  7. Thank you for reading my post and being my followers, and thank you for your comments, too.

  8. Jack -- I enjoyed your review and like how specific you were about what made the movie so creepy (that the Doctor couldn't trust anyone.) I also really like that you're watching black and white movies, but maybe you'd like to see the 1978 version of the film. A lot of people don't like re-makes, but the 1978 INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS is a wonderful film that's very creepy and powerful.

  9. Ok, I will watch the 1978 version!
