  • Monolith rated this: 3 stars out of 5.

Average scare factor for fifty (plus) year old 'horror' movies. Translation: not scary. Actually very dry, and almost dull. The sequel chose a more politically correct cast -- six inhuman offspring representing varied nationalities as opposed to the original's Aryan-like blondes. They also were virtually mute in the second film, and less of the spooky glowing eyes effect in favor of staring blankly and in unison. Needless to say, I wasn't impressed. Three stars for both.

(Village of the Damned) Prof. Gordon Zellaby (voiceover): "A brick wall... a brick wall... I must think of a brick wall... a brick wall... I must think of a brick wall... a brick wall... brick wall... I must think of a brick wall... It's almost half past eight... brick wall... only a few seconds more... brick wall... brick wall... brick wall... nearly over... a brick wall..."
