The 1956 classic will invade Blu-ray in July.

In an early announcement to retailers, Olive Films has revealed 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers' will be available on Blu-ray on July 17.

One of the greatest and most influential Sci-Fi films of all time stars Kevin McCarthy as a doctor in a small California town whose patients are becoming hysterical and accuse their loved ones as emotionless imposters. Plant-like extra-terrestrials have invaded Earth, replicating the villagers in giant seed "pods" and taking position of their souls while they sleep. Realizing that the epidemic is out of control, in a terrifying race for his life, he escapes to warn the world of the deadly invasion of the pod people! Directed by the great Don Siegel ('Dirty Harry') and co-starring Dana Wynter, Carolyn Jones, Larry Gates and King Donovan. Remade in 1978, 1997 and 2007.

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray will be $29.95.
