INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS
(USA, 1956) 80 minutes
Dr. Miles Bennell returns to his small town practice to find several of his patients suffering
the paranoid delusion that their friends or relatives are impostors. He is initially skeptical,
especially when the alleged doppelgangers are able to answer detailed questions about their
victim's lives, but he is eventually persuaded that something odd has happened and determines
to find out what is causing this phenomenon.
THE DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS
(UK, 1963) 93 minutes
A shower of meteorites produces a glow that blinds anyone that looks at it. As it was such
a beautiful sight, most people were watching, and as a consequence, 99% of the population go
blind. The Triffids are not experimental plants that are capable of moving themselves around
and attacking people… they are space aliens whose spores have arrived in an earlier meteor shower.
MY LIVING DOLL: THE KLEPTOMANIAC
(USA, 1965) 25 minutes
Rhoda, unaware that department stores are places where people purchase things,
helps herself to gems from a jewelry counter.
