Frightful October Horror Movie Picks – DAY 22

“Village of the Damned” (1960)

Chilling movie. You wanna watch something that will turn your blood ice cold? Watch Wolf Rilla’s masterful sci-fi/thriller about a town overrun by blond-haired, glowing-eyed children of uncertain paternity prove to have frightening powers that most cannot comprehend.

Spooky performances from all around, and a restrained, eerie atmosphere make this British horror film both an unnerving and over-erratic for the times it originally came out. However, in the mid-1990s John Carpenter thought he could do another horror remake justice, much to the same vein of his version of “The Thing”, needless to say, his adaptation is a total crock. Watch the original, and thank me later.

Directed by: Wolf Rilla

Screenplay by: Stirling Silliphant, Wolf Rila, and Ronald Kinnoch

Starring: George Sanders, Barbara Shelley, Martin Stephens, Michael Gwynn, and Richard Warner
