From the master of suspense, John Carpenter, comes a chilling new version of the sci-fi classic. Something is terribly wrong in the tiny village of Midwich. After an unseen force invades a quiet coastal town, 10 women mysteriously find themselves pregnant. Local physician Dr. Alan Chaffee (Reeve) and government scientist Dr. Susan Verner (Alley) join forces when the women simultaneously give birth...and the reign of terror begins. The people of Midwich must try to find a way to stop the children in the Village Of The Damned.
A surprisingly good remake.

This is a surprisingly good remake of the British 60's thriller of the same name. John Carpenter ups the horror element of the film to good effect and for a 15 year old film the special effects and overall picture quality hold up very well. Even as a regular DVD upscaled to 1080p, the picture quality was clear and crisp. If you're a fan of horror thrillers then this is well worth a rental.
