Jack Finney’s 1950s zombie novel Invasion of the Body Snatchers is undergoing its fourth movie adaptation. Saturday’s Daily Telegraph while discussing the story in its Arts section, includes these choice words:
“The invasion… has crystallised in an image, and a word, that have, well, invaded our culture: “pod”. The alien seed-pods, concealed in our homes, drain the thoughts and memories and physical features from us when we fall asleep, then replace us – our original bodies are disposed of.”
