Description
These chilling sci-fi classics pit the adults of a small British village against the town's children, who have been taken over by aliens. In "Village of the Damned" (1960), the kids (now with glowing eyes) use their superior intellects to control and destroy anyone who gets in their way. The sequel, "Children of the Damned" (1963), finds adults trying to head off the kid-borne contagion before it takes over the rest of the world. These two movies are guaranteed to frighten children and adults alike; turn down the lights and pop some popcorn!

    Comments about this product:

    I renamed the movie. This is a science fiction thriller. It holds you to edge of seat. Get some popcorn, so hand to mouth action will keep you in reality.

    A village in England is mysterious. All animals become unconscious. Even the military can not explain. A few hours later it is over.

    Later, many women are pregnant without explanation. No sexual encounters, only the women that were in later stage of their monthly cycle with eggs. The doctor doesn't believe them, even the virgin! However, George Sanders thinks he finally got lucky with his wife.

    These mothers ten weeks later have a fetus of five months. Explain that doctor! Eight weeks later the babies are born. They are fully developed. I vote for 18 weeks pregnancy versus 36 weeks! But, these children are all platinum blondes, against genes.

    These children demonstrate unusual traits. They seem to be physic (mind-readers) and possess (what one knows-all know) one mind. Everybody in the village are afraid of them.

    George knows somehow from that one strange day that he is not the father. He volunteers to form a boarding school just for these children. These children are miracles.

    These children demonstrate they are killers. They can control another's mind to do things against their will and force witnesses to forget.

    George finally decides these children must be killed. But, how? They can read his mind. How to block thoughts?

    Watch the ending. Suspense! I invite you to watch. I like this movie for the imagination, atypical of 1950's genre of space monsters like "The Glob" (which was fun).

      Comments about this product:

      Entertaining and suspensful film in the tradition of the best Sci-Fi of the late 40's to the early 50's, high on story line, drama, and actor believeability. less on special affects which were good and not houkey. The audiance was captured within 3 minutes of the start, then held quietly til the mid point of the story then the suspence begsn to build until the climax where the alien children were finally distroyed.
