Village of the Damned. A Sci-fi Cult Classic

Beware the stare that will paralyze the will of the world!

Village of The Damned (1960), a cult classic of Sci-fi cinema, was based on John Wyndham's 1957 novel The Midwich Cuckoos.

In the small English village of Midwich everybody and everything falls into a deep, mysterious sleep for several hours in the middle of the day. Some months later every woman capable of child-bearing is pregnant and the children that are born out of these pregnancies seem to grow very fast and they all have the same blond hair and strange, penetrating eyes that make people do things they don't want to do. source/more

So young, so innocent, so deadly - they came to conquer the world!

The 1964 film Village of the Damned, although not really a sequel, is based along a similar theme and storyline. Most viewers consider the earlier movie to be the better of the two.
