A small-town doctor learns that the population of his community is being replaced by emotionless alien duplicates.
During test screenings, much of the film's original humor and humanity was cut when the audience found it difficult to follow and laughed at all the wrong moments. The studio insisted on edits because it wasn't policy to mix humor with horror.
Dr. Miles J. Bennell:
Well, it started, for me it started last Thursday. In response to an urgent message from my nurse I'd hurried home from a medical convention I'd been attending. At first glance, everything looked the same. It wasn't. Something evil had taken ...
After Jack Belicec cuts his hand, he and Dr. Bennell are talking next to the pool table. Dr. Bennell states that Becky's cousin (Wilma Lentz) thinks her "uncle and her aunt are not her uncle and her aunt". However Wilma's suspicion only concerned her uncle Ira. Her aunt was never mentioned.
THE END comes up on the final shot of the film of Miles looking relieved that Dr Hill has believed his story, and is calling the FBI about the alien invasion of Santa Mira.
