“Invasion of the Body Snatchers” quotes(1956)
Plot – In a small town in the United States are occurring strange things. Some people seem not recognize their relatives or their closest friends. Dr. Miles examines some cases but he cannot explain the phenomenon. An explanation is that an ultra-cosmic force has invaded the town and it's copying human features. In fact, strange seeds are producing pseudo human bodies. Dr. Miles tries to give the alarm as he discovers many people are turned yet. The Body Snatchers are trying to stop him, but Miles reaches the nearest town and the authorities declare a state of emergency.
