Invasion of the Body Snatchers
It is natural to see the pods as standing for the idea of communism which gradually takes possession of a normal person, leaving him outwardly unchanged but transformed within.Others have argued that the film reflects left-wing paranoia about McCarthyism. In any event, the theme was a popular one of this time – the threat to individuality and personal freedom. A good remake, directed by Philip Kauffman, was released in 1978.
