‘Invasion of the Body Snatchers’ Movie Summary
Invasion of the Body Snatchers takes place in the city of San Fransisco. When Matthew Bennell hears several of his friends complain that their relatives are somehow different, he questions them. Most deny being different, and some just make up lame excuses. Soon the alien invasion kicks into high gear, and as their numbers increase, so does their openness. They quietly take control of the city. After Matthew witnesses an attempted replacement, he realizes that he and his friends must never fall asleep, or they will suffer the same fate. However, it soon becomes hard to tell whom you can trust, and whose body the aliens have already snatched.
