INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS / Episodes From “The Outer Limits”

The 1978 feature INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS (description below) is followed by two episodes of classic sci-fi TV series “The Outer Limits”:

Production and Decay of Strange Particles” (1964, Park Circus, 51 min. Dir. Leslie Stevens). Leonard Nimoy is one of a team of physicists whose experiments on subatomic particles trigger a chain reaction that takes control of the scientists one by one, and threatens to engulf the world.

I, Robot” (1964, Park Circus, 51 min. Dir. Leon Benson). A robot wrongly accused of killing its creator is tried for murder, as defense attorney Howard da Silva and newspaper reporter Leonard Nimoy (who also would appear in the episode’s 1995 remake) struggle to uncover the truth. Adapted from Amazing Stories magazine.

1978, Park Circus/MGM, 115 min, USA, Dir: Philip Kaufman

A deftly handled, scary reimagining of both Jack Finney’s source novel and Don Siegel’s original 1956 movie, with Donald Sutherland, Brooke Adams and Leonard Nimoy trying to deal with the sudden influx of body-snatching alien seed pods in the San Francisco Bay Area. With Jeff Goldblum, Veronica Cartwright, Lelia Goldoni and Don Siegel as a cab driver. Cinematography by Michael Chapman (RAGING BULL, TAXI DRIVER).
