retro trailer: ‘The Village of the Damned’

Take a look back at an old trailer…

Ah, it was the beginning of the subgenre of horror movies about demonic children that would enjoy a solid run in the 1960s and 70. The Omen’s Damien is a direct descendant of the Midwich kids… and so is Jodie Foster’s overly precocious child prostitute of Taxi Driver. These were the dominant pop culture images of kids while Generation X was being born. Is it any wonder we’re such fuckups?

The Village of the Damned is available on DVD in Region 1 from and from, and in Region 2 from Amazon U.K.
