  Invasion of the Body Snatchers on Blu-ray [read more]
  YOU'RE NEXT!!!
  Released on Blu-ray just in time for Halloween, on 25 October 2021

Directed by Don Siegel (Dirty Harry), this milestone of science fiction taps into the paranoia and uncertainty of its times to present a chilling critique of post-war American society. Invasion of the Body Snatchers remains an enduring and suspenseful classic.

Presented on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK, with a huge range of contextualising extras, fans can experience the thrills and horrors of this highly influential movie like never before.

When multiple residents of a Californian town begin to suffer from identical frenzied delusions, Dr Miles Bennell (Kevin McCarthy) suspects the community is in the grip of a new kind of epidemic. But his investigations soon reveal the terrifying truth, uncovering not a medical emergency but a hidden extra-terrestrial invasion that threatens mankind's very existence.
