VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED is never going to be mistaken for one of John Carpenter's highlights - in fact, you could probably point to at as the beginning of an inexorable downward trajectory for the director. Still, Scream Factory plays no favorites when it comes to restoring horror flicks, so they're bringing us a brand new Blu-ray of Carpenter's movie this April.
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.
