"The commentary by Maurice Yacowar gets more interesting each time you hear it." David Green, The Laser Tribune

In a Norman Rockwell-esque town, nasty aliens grow from giant seed pods and replace their human hosts. The killer pods have been interpreted as America's fear of communist infiltration in the 1950s; no matter what your interpretation is, this movie is good scary fun! Widescreen transfer.

Criterion's CAV special edition features:

  • Audio commentary by film professor Maurice Yacowar
  • The original theatrical trailer
  • An interview with director Don Siegel
