Them Their Eyes

Village Of The Damned  A small countryside village in England experiences a time period of several hours where all living things lie lifeless and helpless. Anything living that connects within this sphere of lifelessness gets the like treatment. Everyone soon awakens from whatever happened, and soon the women of child-bearing years all get pregnant and are all due on the same day. Village of the Damned is one of those discerning, intelligent science fiction films of yesteryear that tends to leave much to your imagination in terms of gore and violence as well as make you think and ponder important questions about the limits with which humanity should go to procure knowledge. The children are decidedly very creepy as their eyes glow when they are angered. Martin Stephens as George Sanders’ boy is particularly good as he looks and speaks with such class and distinction yet has the conscience of a cold-blooded, calculated killer. Sanders is also very good in his role as a man torn between bridging the field of knowledge with the unknown and protecting mankind from foreign/alien harm. His wife, played with credibility, is Hammer beauty Barbara Shelley. A great British science fiction film and certainly one of the more thought-provoking ones around.

Excellent Stuff…

at least if you’re a science fiction and horror fan. There’s a great build-up here and a very satisfying climax. This has a wonderful eerie feel reminiscent of the feeling one gets watching “the original Outer Limits”. The story feels a little bit more like “the Twilight Zone” however with the questions of morality, right and wrong it raises. This film might not appeal as widely to non-genre fans but it’s classic great stuff for the fan. Best scenes involve the eyes–it’s a very effective nightmare when it’s your own children who are the evil ones(or are they?).
