This terrifying alien invasion movie was remade a handful of times, but most cinephiles think it’s the original 1956 version that reigns supreme—though the 1978 version is likewise held in high regard. In the film, a San Francisco health inspector and his colleague begin to suspect their friends and neighbors aren’t who they seem. Their worst nightmares are confirmed when he discovers that aliens are in fact replacing humans with drone-like doppelgangers.
