Village of the Damned (1960)

This is a great, eerie horror film.  Something has made everyone in the village pass out and when they awake, all the women are pregnant.  When their children are born, they have powers of controlling your mind and reading your thoughts.  Are these children from outer space?  Are they a government experiment?  No one knows.  But soon the children take control of the actions of everyone in the village.

The children look very creepy.  They are all dressed in their "Sunday best", have golden blonde hair, and have strange glowing eyes.  The children are a classic image of horror.  You will recognize them.

There is a scene of a man who is looking to kill the children for revenge of his brother's death.  This is a very intense scene and, I imagine, shocking for the time.

B+  I recommend it.
