As more of the people in Miles and Beckys' life become pod people, I had the same sensation I have when I watch election coverage and the candidates I voted for do badly or when I sit in the basement during a tornado warning.
Citizen Rules
The 1956 version originally had lots of dry humor in it but the studio executives would not allow humor in a horror film so they ordered all the humor scenes cut.
I'd say the latter interpretation certainly goes a long way towards helping Invasion of the Body Snatchers hold up as well as it does, and while it's still got its flaws, it might well be the definitive 1950s horror movie regardless.
