What's scarier than scary kids? Village of the Damned is the definitive scary-kid classic, a truly unsettling film drawn from John Wyndham's novel The Midwich Cuckoos. The brilliant opening sequence depicts 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, blond-headed children, who are either gifted, evil, or "the world's new people." A splendid outing, not least in the way it catches parental anxiety about this small new stranger in one's home. (It was remade by John Carpenter in 1995.)

"Effective and creepy British sci-fi horror about a small village where the inhabitants suffer from a strange occurrence, which leads to the women becoming pregnant and giving birth to blonde haired children with extraordinary powers. George Sanders leads the cast in a film that is short and straight to the point, while the children, with their mind controlling powers, are unforgettably evil. Shocking in places, this is a truly gripping cult favourite."

"Increíblemente, tratando de forma más directa y a la vez simple las cosas que el remake dejó sin responder (como de donde vienen los niños, porque las personas se desmayaron, etc) se pudo disfrutar mucho más la historia, que sigue siendo muy simple. Aquí le dan un enfoque mayor a lo perturbador, la música y las tomas ayudan mucho a sumergirse. Las actuaciones estuvieron bastante bien. Y me gustó como hicieron que Gordón de hecho no quisiera deshacerse de los niños rápido por estar of"

"October 7 "You have to be taught to leave us alone." I have been curious about this one ever since I saw the remake a couple years ago which was surprisingly weak which was a shame as I like most of John Carpenter's work. Now that I've seen it, I think it just goes to show that not all horror movies need to be remade. Most of the time I don't find classic horror movies to be scary at all despite my love for them, (Although it's hard for a horror film in general to truly scare me.) but this o"
