In a small American town, a doctor realises that its inhabitants are being gradually replaced by emotionless beings. In the mid-1950s, Don Siegel set the gold standard for paranoiac science fiction, a seminal and haunting work that was to bring about a shift in the genre. Rural America, the model based on the imagery of Norman Rockwell, gives way to a world where identity and security are called into question.
