The Mind-Snatchers aka The Happiness Cage

Mind Snatchers

Microchips to trigger pleasure centers of hostile soldiers’ brains? What could go wrong! We’ll tell you what goes right—The Mind-Snatchers, released as The Happiness Cage in 1971, is the first starring role for a fresh faced Christopher Walken. The plot is likened to A Clockwork Orange meets One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, and it has the wonderful ’70s visual asthetic of many of the other very best sci-fi films. We couldn’t think of a better fit for a mid-week movie at the Trylon microcinema. 7 PM. $5. —Thomas Alejandro
