Synopsis

Sci-fi movies experienced a boom in the 1950s and this remains one of the enduring classics. Miles Bennell is a respected doctor who discovers that people in his small Californian town are being replaced by identical-looking aliens. The only characteristic betraying these pod people is their complete lack of emotion. McCarthy's frantic efforts to stop the spread of these impostors look hopeless as more and more succumb - and that's where this film really excels in generating its paranoid tension.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
