In 'Village of the Damned' (1960), the sudden and temporary paralysis of a small English hamlet, which is followed by the town's women becoming mysteriously pregnant. The spawn of this occurrence are a dozen eerie, blonde-haired children, who are either gifted, evil, or 'the world's new people'. In 'Children of the Damned' (1963), scientists discover that there are five children who each have enormous intelligence. The children are flown to London to be studied, but they escape the laboratory and gather in a church.

Village of rhe Damned

Fri, 8 Nov 2013 | Review by: Micky B

Undoubtedly one of the very best SF pictures ever made! German director Wolf Rilla has made this a no-nonsense screen version of English novelist John Wyndham's scary tale <i>The Midwitch Cockoos</i> and has stuck to the book as closely as possible. Its a difficult film to review without giving too much away, but in the English village of Midwitch. every woman capable of childbirth falls pregnant simultaneously – and give birth almost at the same time as well. The children themselves are all very similar, and at an early age, they discover that they are able to communicate telepathically with one another. They can read human minds as well – and implant ideas in them. When doing something that takes a great deal of concentration, their eyes begin to glow...and this creates one of the scariest special effects ever filmed! Professor Gordon Selaby (George Sander)'s wife (Barbara Shelley) is one of the “mothers,” who reluctantly agrees with her husband that something must be done get rid of these “child-monsters:) and set the plan in motion before the children can read the mind of the person performing the task. This may not sound like much...but its one <i>heck</i> of a film! (Horror director John Carpenter remade it in 1995. but filmed in color. Strangely, this had the effect of <i>softening</i> the impact of the glowing eyes!)
