“When I saw the first version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, directed by Don Siegel, I was only a kid, but I knew it contained more truth than any movie I had ever seen before.”
Dean Koontz from his Introduction,

Jon L. Breen from his essay, The Fiction of Jack Finney
“The gross-out level is one thing, but it is on that second level of horror that we often experience that low sense of anxiety which we call “the creeps.” Over the years, Invasion of the Body Snatchers has given a lot of people the creeps.”
Stephen King from his essay, Invasion of the Body Snatchers
