Overview

John Carpenter scares up a horror remake with his small-town fright fest Village of the Damned. Presented in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen, Universal's work on this transfer appears to be in tip-top shape. With solid colors and dark black levels, the image sports no edge enhancement, grain, or other imperfections that might otherwise mar the image. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround and is also top-notch. With a bombastic bass and swirling surround sounds, this mix is very full and should give any home theater and thorough workout. Also included on this disc is a Dolby 2.0 soundtrack in French as well as Spanish subtitles and English captions. The extra features on Village of the Damned are less than exciting. The supplements available include a theatrical trailer for the film, a few scant production notes, some info on the cast and crew, and a few bonus trailers for other Universal releases.

Village of the Damned 3.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.

Now don't get me wrong, the Village of the Damned is a great movie but it seems that all Science fiction films of its time were much alike (Such as the Tommyknockers) making it much unoriginal. But comming away from the cons and moving onto the pros. This film handles the evil, outcast town very well. Its overall story line is very simple as well, being the story of all women of child bearing ages being impregnated with alien babys who grow rapidly, are telepaths and have gold hair and eyes. The films simplicity seems to not con but pro this movie. Also, this film has some very well known and very good actors and actresses appearing in it. Overall, a very good film, but not great, indeed.

This movie was good, but the ending could've been better. People get knocked out by an unknown entity for hours, then later women are pregnant and gives birth to nine sport blonde haired kids, wearing gray clothes and sweats, marching like little soldiers trying to kill everyone. Later, people form a mob like a Frankenstein style was retarded and a circus of policemen, S.W.A.T, and M.P.s come along and shoot up each other was cheesy and old-fashioned. This is a movie that's gonna make you sweat.

This movie was great! It totally freaked me out and was my first movie where I saw somebody gut themselves. Seriously recommended:-"
