In the sleepy Californian town of Santa Mira, strange happenings are afoot. Dr. Miles Bennell finds residents experiencing an epidemic of mass hysteria, imagining their relatives replaced by detached, emotionless copies. As Bennell gets closer to the horrifying truth – that the substitutions are part of an extraterrestrial invasion scheme and the copies are emerging from giant seed pods – the ‘pod people’ begin to close in.
