Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956)

Spare and creepy tale that still holds plenty of power today. Political content hard to ignore, though it's also fairly nebulous (I prefer the anti-Communist reading, though it may only be because I know Don Siegel also directed the severely right-wing Dirty Harry). Overall, pretty cool; the "you're next!" ending is one of the best endings ever, even when it's not the ending.

Grade: B+
