Movie of the Week: Seconds

You’ve never seen Rock Hudson like this. And you probably will never again want to either after seeing this 1966 psychological thriller.

Who are SECONDS? The answer is almost too terrifying for words

Directed by John Frankenheimer, the film is unlike anything Hudson has been in before or since. Hudson plays a character who is an incarnation of another individual before a dramatic, and to him, a traumatic transformation.

A combination of sci-fi, horror, drama and mystery, Seconds isn’t for the faint of heart who have fond memories of Hudson’s romatic comedy streaks.

Interesting side note: Salome Jens, who also appears in this movie, went on to play the Female Changeling in the Star Trek: Deep Space 9 series.
