The Story: Dr. Miles J. Bennell tells his colleague Dr. Hill a hallucinating story. The town of Santa Mira has been invaded by extraterrestrials who perfectly copy the inhabitants they replace while sleeping. These creatures replicate within huge kisses that grow until they create copies of the emotionless victims, then killing the originals. Bennell tries to sound the alarm, but nobody believes him: the town has become a hub for bacilli and all the inhabitants are now doubled. He tries to escape together with his girlfriend but during the journey the woman is unable to keep awake and falls asleep, being contaminated, and in turn becoming a replicant. Upset, he reaches a highway where he tries to warn the men of the danger, but is arrested and taken to the hospital by Doctor Hill, who, after hearing the story, judges him insane; but at the very end of Bennell’s tale, he arrives at a hospital injured in a car accident, driving a truck full of strange bacteria from Santa Mira. Dr. Hill realizes that Bennell has been telling the truth and telephones to raise the general alarm. The soldiers who had escorted Bennel, hearing the news, report the danger and immediately warn the army.
