A near-palpable sense of uncanny dread looms over the story of Miles Bennell (Kevin McCarthy), a young doctor who gradually discovers that the inhabitants of his sleepy California town are being replaced with mysteriously inhuman replicates. Adapted from a serialized novel, Don Siegel’s film would spawn several Hollywood remakes over the decades — a testament to its enduring legacy as an influential landmark. Sixty-plus years after it was made, this sci-fi classic retains its power to thrill and chill young and older audiences alike. The film will be preceded by the Looney Tunes short Duck Dodgers in the 24 1/2th Century.
