Los Angeles TimesDennis Hunt
Easily the best of the '50s sci-fi thrillers, this one is subtle but still scary, with the suspense building slowly and steadily.[27 Oct 1989, p.F30]

The New York TimesPeter M. Nichols
Almost 40 years later, Don Siegel's film about the pod people hasn't lost its chill. [02 Dec 1994, p.D18]

A B-picture classic. This plain and inexpensive piece of science fiction employs few of the resources of the cinema (to put it mildly), but it has an idea that confirms everyone's suspicions.

Incredibly chilling, this Don Siegel movie still delivers a powerful punch. [04 Sept 1987, p.54C]
