Children Of The Damned (1964)


Bil’s rating (out of 5):   BB

United Kingdom, 1964.  Lawrence P. Bachmann Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer British Studios.  Screenplay by , based on the novel The Midwich Cuckoos by .  Cinematography by .  Produced by .  Music by .  Production Design by .  Film Editing by .  

Boring sequel to the terrific original has very little to do with Village Of The Damned. It’s a different set of children this time, a group of youngsters who have been gathered by the British government for testing in a laboratory because of their incredibly high capacity for complex knowledge. Instead of cooperating, the children all gather at a spooky old church in an effort to wreak havoc on the world. Moves at a snail pace and has nothing fun to recommend it.
