Acting: 4.5; pretty good acting from this cast.
Theme: 4.5; time freezes and power goes out in the town of Midwich, England, where all phone lines are cut and people all fall unconscious, causing the military to divide the town from the rest of the world. The people soon reawaken and go back to life as usual before the women realize they are all pregnant, and they give birth on the same day to a bunch of weird-eyed children with blond hair. As the villagers soon learn of the developing and dangerous powers of the children, the adults try to formulate a plan to overtake the children and reclaim their village.
Content: 4.5; a few moments of eeriness and violence; characters collapse under the strain of some unknown entity, and the children use their powers to cause people to commit suicide via gunshots (to the head, yet offscreen) and fire.
Language: 5.0; nothing objectionable.

Village of the Damned is a classic staple of the '60s slew of horror/sci-fi films. Based on a novel by John Wyndham (The Midwich Cuckoos), the film follows an English village, Midwich, when the populace pass out in a faint and all power cuts loose. After the town is quarantined by the military, the townspeople reawaken to learn that the womenfolk are all pregnant. They all give birth at the same time, and all of the children share the same bright-colored hair and glossy, frightening eyes. Professor Gordon Zellabay, the father of one of the children, tries to protect and help the children grow, despite the revelation of some startling and potentially dangerous powers. As the children begin to unleash their newfound abilities, causing multiple deaths, the townspeople grow afraid of the creepy kids, who are aware of their fears. Realizing all hope is lost, the townspeople decide to take dire actions to try and solve the problem once and for all. The film is really well-made, with great acting and atmosphere that really set the mood for these creepy tale. The special effects, while limited, are done convincingly, and the plot is definitely an intriguing albeit confusing one, with a twist ending usual of these types of horror flicks of the '50s and '60s. It definitely is among the most classic and memorable horror movies of this time period. It does have some of the usual tropes of horror films, with characters making the dumbest of decisions at the most inopportune of times, but that's to be expected. Otherwise, how would such a story come about? Highly recommended. ***Watched August 17, 2019*** ( )

Acting: 4.5; Theme: 4.5; Content: 4.5; Language: 5.0; Overall: 4.5; In this film classic a small English town falls into a deep state of sleep with no recollection upon awakening. Within months of this dire situation all the child-bearing women in this community become pregnant. The offspring of each woman have the same blond-hair and glaring eyes. They grow into younglings that desire to rule the village with their superpowers. Highly recommend. ***August 17, 2019*** (watched with Jonathan) ( )

This is a superbly minimalist masterpiece of science fiction paranoia that sees every living creature in the tranquil English village of Midwich falling unconscious. When they recover all seems well until it becomes apparent that all the women of child-bearing age are pregnant. Nine months later a group of identical white-haired children with strangely glowing eyes are born. Kindly schoolteacher (George Sanders) whose wife Anthea (Barbara Shelley) is one of the new mothers tries to figure it all out. The film is shot in crisp and clear but incredibly moody black and white that gives it a decidedly creepy edge. Wolf Rilla's direction is stealthy and he cleverly allows the horror of the situation to grow slowly and incrementally. He adds to the paranoia and eeriness by never providing a clear explanation of the events and by the way he shoots the creepy children: their blond-haired Aryan looks, their hive mind personality and their scarily glowing eyes are all simply done but are wonderfully effective and memorable. George Sanders is perfectly cast in the lead role as is his beautiful and much younger wife Barbara Shelley. Just as effective is the young Martin Stephen as their "son" who delivers a supremely creepy performance as the lead child. "Village of the Damed" is sparse and minimal, has little action or effects and is highly restrained in everything it does. That all works in its favour, however, making it an eerie, frightening and brilliantly paranoid little SF thriller. ( )
