Saturday Frights: Invasion Of The Body Snatchers – Trailer (1956)

Kevin McCarthy - Invasion of the Body Snatchers
The Projectionist and I were talking the other night as we were recording the upcoming Saturday Frights Podcast and my co-host mentioned that one of the first films he ran at the Haunted Drive-In was 1956’s Invasion of the Body Snatchers starring the late great Kevin McCarthy. The Projectionist also made note of the ingenious way the trailer for the film was created for the film and after watching it online I must admit that I agree with him, see for yourself though, you would almost think you had possibly walked into a movie in progress.

Now before you go out to rent or stream the film for yourself tonight take a moment and enjoy this bit of trivia on what could have been the film’s title, a anecdote presented by Kevin McCarthy himself.
