Critics didn't seem to like Village of the Damned(1995) but when I asked everybody I know, they all liked it. Gee, I wonder why. Village of the Damned is about 9 platinum-white haired children who can control bodies and read minds. Their quest for survival leads to horror and destruction. There are really good acting performances by Christopher Reeve, Kristi Ally, and Mark Hamil. The two best ones were Lindsey Haun as Mara and Thomas Dekker as David, two of the main children. Lindsey Haun is stunning in this movie.
I don't know if any other child could've pulled off a role like that. She was emotionless, cold and commanding, yet still beautiful and stylish. She's now 17, and still just as awesome. Thomas Dekker did good in the middle of emotionless and empathetic .
Village of the Damned is not like a slasher movie with tons of blood. It cuts down yet still looks real. It sends chills down your spine when you watch it, and the glowing eyes are cool. And like my friend said, "Even if the entire movie completely sucked, Lindsey Haun would still manage to keep the entire movie awesome.
