Preview of a new digital re-issue
Dir: Don Siegel. Starring: Kevin McCarthy, Dana Wynter, Larry Gates, King Donovan. US 1956. 80mins
A man arrives in San Francisco to inform the world that strange aliens have arrived on earth capable of replicating humans and possessing them. A quintessential 50s sci-fi movie, a paranoid thriller and now widely regarded as a bona fide classic, the film locates horror in the everyday: the enemy is among us and they look just like our family and friends.
Presented by CINECITY and Film Hub South East in association with Folkestone Triennial 2014 as part of the BFI’s Sci-Fi: Days of Fear and Wonder
