Village of the Damned (1960)
Director: Wolf Rilla
Main Stars: George Sanders, Barbara Shelley, Martin Stephens
Storyline: In a small village all the children start to be born with blond hair and have glowing eyes that people fear.
Review (Spoils): In the small village of Midwich the whole place falls into a deep slumber/ time stops during the day with no explanation. Several months later all the ladies within the town is pregnant (which are capable of child birth), once the babies are born they all have platinum blond hair and glowing eyes that enthrall people to do their bidding. The story goes on as the freaky kids start to overcome the village and start domination over everyone.
We have lots of blond wigs, some flashing eyes, some creepy sci-fi type music, some classic actors and actresses George Sanders, Barbara Shelley, Martin Stephens and some very bad tempered children. This film is a classic and a must see for any horror fan or sci-fi fan. The idea of one learning means they all understand as they share and communicate as one. Also the explanation of why this is all happening is never explained and that is what makes the movie is more of gem…too much information does ruin a film sometimes.
Rating: This is a sci-fi and horror classic; too bad they did a remake of it and ruined the whole damn thing. There is a sequel but it is not even close to this one.
