Hello Pulp Friends

Day 23 of this Classic Horror Marathon features a British Classic: THE VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED! Only one week remaining of movies until the GRAND FINAL of next SUnday. Be there - you don't wanna miss it, trust me (as a few of you can confirm ;))

The Village of the Damned
GB, 1960
directed by Wolf Rilla
starring: George Sanders, Barbara Shelley, Michael C. Gwynne

In a little town life stops for an hour, after which all the women are pregnant. 12 super-intelligent, emotionless, blonde children with telepathic powers are all born at the same time. They turn out to be deadly beings from another planet. Naturally, the parents are distraught until one of them, whose son is the children’s leader, tries to stop their plan for domination.

Village of the Damned is one of my personal favourites. Another awesome tribute, Francesco - hooray for creepy, ultra-intelligent kids with mindcontrol powers and on with the 31 Days of Halloween brilliance. :)
