Children Of The Damned Movie Review


In this perfunctory sequel to the classic Village of the Damned, more alienish/supergenius/telepathic kids are unearthed, only this time the sextet can be found flung around the world. In addition to the British brat, there's an Indian boy, a Chinese girl, and so on. They are all brilliant and can read each other's minds -- so naturally it's a great idea with scientists bring them together for an impromptu summit. Unfortunately, the politically correct multi-ethnic group destroys the only truly scary part of the original: The creepy, identical blondness of the children. The plot is also a total retread; adults try to destroy the kids when they realize what they are, and the kids do whatever they can to stop it. Not badly made, at least.
