It's interesting how it adapts a lot of Pierre Boulle's novel that didn't make it into the first film.

VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED (1960) & CHILDREN OF THE DAMNED (1962)

Back to back on TCM tonight. The latter is ostensibly a sequel to the former, but other than weird kids with strange powers there’s almost nothing in common. I’ve seen both before.

Low key, with some chilling moments. Very British.

Flawed, but the only PotA sequel I can honestly say I enjoy.

*******

Due to the involvement of Ricardo Montalbán and Eric Braeden, no
doubt.

Love VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED... wonderfully subdued and creepy.

Don't care for CHILDREN OF THE DAMNED... last time I watched it, I remember thinking you couldn't ask for a more bored & uninterested batch of child actors.  The creepiest thing about that movie is the poster!

(I wasn't around in the '60s, but I think this image would disturb people in movie lobbies even today.  Little kids must have been in tears looking up at this in 1963/64... nightmare-inducing!)

Martin - The Arrow Release of George Romeros' Vampire movie, it also has the Italian release: Wampyr(which will be probably be watched in the next week). Good movie, the ending is still wrong(even if Martin did kill a few people before that)... ;-)
