23. The original 'Bodysnatchers' from probably early 60's.
The 'pods' just bugged the crap out of me. Some guy went to the back of a box truck and opened it up.

There was these bubbling, foamy triangular things, that seemed to be alive. Or remnants of people. Just shit on my parade for quite a while. Had nasty dreams for some time after.

Keep trying to find that scene on youtube. Just to see how hokey now. But can't. Maybe I made it all up in my head.

Even scarier.
