'Invasion of the Body Snatchers' (1956, 1978)

Also 'Body Snatchers' (1993), 'The Invasion' (2007) Alien agenda: Slowly replace the human population of the earth by creating exact replicas, minus all warmth and emotion, in big seed pods. Did it work? You bet it worked. It worked so well in the '50s (where movies generally had happy endings), they did it four different times. (We're partial to the Donald Sutherland screamy version of the invasion.) -- Patrick Day
