Dr. Susan Verner:
[sees the group of alien children]
Oh!... I... I'm glad you're all here, I really think that I could help you...
[the children stare at her with glowing eyes and she falls into a trance, leading them to the basement where David's partner was autopsied and preserved in a jar. The children force Verner to lie down on a steel exam table and disembowel herself, and David smiles thinly in revenge]

I have just bought this DVD, and I find it an brilliant version. I am very lucky to have the 1960 original on a video, I found the whole film to be thrilling and it has good effects. well done John. I also found the children to be more striking than the original version I also liked little David, he seemed to be like a normal little boy. and Myra ,the girl seemed to be the children's leader. All the children were good little actors and I ask myself now, will there be another village of the damned? after David and that that lady go away in the car, what happens next???? This film will also be my tribrute to Christopher Reeves as well. I also have the book by John Wyndham called The Midwhich cuckoos I miss George Saunders in this 1995 remake. but Christopher Reeves plays a good scientist. I also think that the professor is very brave sharing his home, with one of the children. Very scary!!!!
