"A good-looking, well-wrought film with some knockout special effects…" – Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
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, ten women mysteriously find themselves pregnant. Local physician Dr. Alan Chaffee (Christopher Reeve) and government scientist Dr. Susan Verner (Kirstie Alley) join forces when the women simultaneously give birth... and the reign of supernatural terror begins. In what The New York Times calls "one scarifying trip," the people of Midwich must try to find a way to stop the unstoppable in the Village of the Damned.
"The film looks and sounds terrific, but the star is the great bonus material which makes this release. What Scream Factory is aces at doing is taking something middle of the road and making it a must have, which is what they’ve done with this release." – Brandon Peters, Why So Blu
"This Collector’s Edition Blu-ray is one of those “kitchen sink” releases because it is loaded with some wonderful extras and half of them are new. There’s all-new interviews with some of the cast and crew, several new featurettes as well as vintage imports from previous releases. All in all, this is a job well done assembling these special features for this release." – Alien Bee
"The extras definitely make this a release worth checking out, and if you’re a John Carpenter fan at all, it’s a no-brainer." – Tim Salmons, The Digital Bits
