Invasion of the Body Snatchers

Couch-sized pea pods, drifting in space for eons, land on Earth, sprout, and turn regular people into Pea Pod People. For all intents, the PPPs look and sound just like regular folk, except they have about as much emotional range as wallpaper.

Invasion of the Body Snatchers

Once you fall asleep next to a pod, icky tendrils come out and suck all your Earth chi into the vines. Your body dies like an October pumpkin left on the porch until December, and you’re re-cast as One Of Them.

Invasion of the Body Snatchers

By the time an excitable psychiatrist finds out, almost everyone is a vegetable version of their former self. His screams go unheeded.

Invasion of the Body Snatchers

Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) is listed in the Library of Congress’ Top 10 Films of all time (it’s number nine, just ahead of I Eat Your Skin/1964. Oops – sorry; my list, not theirs.) IotBS has also been called one of “America’s most heart-pounding films.” I’d have to concur, though Cyberella: Forbidden Passions (1996) achieves similar results.

I Eat Your Skin

I Eat Your Skin (1964). A perfect movie title, no matter horror, educational or porn. It was also released as Zombie. Meh. That said, no one eats anyone’s skin, which I feel is misleading and downright cruel.

I Eat Your Skin

Tom Harris, a womanizing fiction adventure writer, for some reason, goes to an island filled with voodoo stuff. Maybe he’s gonna write about the zombies there that don’t eat your skin. They have sunny-side up egg eyes, though. I think eggs are edible.

I Eat Your Skin

An American scientist is on the island, trying to find a cure for egg eyes…uh, cancer, and discovers that a certain snake venom is causing everyone to zombie up. But someone else forces the doctor to create an army of egg zombies to do illegal stuff.

I Eat Your Skin

Tom has to intervene and get everyone off the island without getting egg on his face. He only succeeds at one of those things.
