Children of the Damned

  • Film

Time Out says

A fairly intriguing and atmospheric exercise in science fiction, made as a sequel to Village of the Damned (an adaptation of John Wyndham's novel The Midwich Cuckoos). About a race of superchildren who (in the eyes of the authorities, at any rate) threaten to take over the world, it has some good moments, though its surreal beginning promises a generation war of apocalyptic dimensions that is never delivered, and the film finally falls into some unconvincing liberal moralising (one of the persisting curses of SF in the cinema).
