52. Don Siegel’s Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956)

Cease your philandering ways and listen up, kiddo, for this April we’re putting together a 1-2-3-punch comparison of bodily snatchery starting with the original maybe-Red Scare classic about creepy white people being replaced with even creepier white people in well-to-do 1950s America. Sure, that was one sentence! From the director that brought you Flaming Star and Two Mules for Sister Sara comes this dazzling classic starring the guy Piranha and none other than Dagmar Wynter and her flagrantly stuffed brazier. Hey, wait a minute, you’re not our listeners! Oh well, it would seem you’ve been replaced a la Crapgras Delusion, so you’ve no reason not to tune in to this episode of Loathsome Things: the most patriotic podcast in these United States!
