As psychiatrist Dr. Matthew Bennell (Donald Sutherland) and his colleagues investigate, they uncover a terrifying truth—the pods are replacing humans with emotionless duplicates. The city plunges into paranoia and mistrust as the invasion spreads. With their very identities at stake, Dr. Bennell and his friends must stay vigilant, unsure whom they can trust. Directed by Philip Kaufman, this riveting remake of the 1956 classic delivers a suspenseful and thought-provoking exploration of conformity, individuality, and the fear of losing one's humanity.
