An American village is visited by some unknown life form which leaves the women of the village pregnant. Nine months later, the babies are born, and they all look normal, but it doesn't take the "parents" long to realize that the kids are not human or humane.Written by
The film was shot in western Marin County, California. Director John Carpenter had a house in Inverness for several years, so the location was essentially his second home at that time (as the director puts it, "his own backyard"). However, the locals were not happy to see the film crew in the area so they made the shoot very difficult by harassment and vandalism. Carpenter tells that while they were filming, for example, a sound take, a neighbor would start mowing his lawn or start up a chainsaw until he was paid to stop. Some of the people even tried to break into the equipment trucks. The whole experience essentially soured Carpenter on living in the area, where several scenes of his earlier film The Fog (1980) were also filmed. See more »
As the people lay unconscious near the beginning of the film, we see Melanie Roberts lying next to the bathtub. The bathtub is filling with water, which would seem to indicate that she has yet to take a bath. Yet she is shown lying next to the tub, wearing a towel with wet hair.
Melanie Roberts is dry (but still wearing the towel) while laying next to the filling tub when the blackout started. When she woke up, she had wet hair because her tub had overflowed and she was laying in a puddle of water. See more »
[Jill reluctantly drives David up to the abandoned barn to be with the other children, but does not open the door for him]
... I'm not lettin' you go.
You haven't been given an option...
[David stares off into space thoughtfully, pondering this]
You know, you don't always have to do everything they say.
We are the same.
[smiles sadly, close to tears]
No, you're not! You're David, you're different!

John Carpenter 1995 remake of the classic Village of the Damned is also a classic. whatever what people may have say, this movie is awesome. the late great Christopher Reeve acting are amazing. its just sad to know that its is last movie before his horrible horse accident. but Reeve is not the best actor in the movie. i would give that title to Lindsey Haun. Lindsey acting as Mara, the leading child is simply amazing. this version is, in my opinion, way better than the original 1960 movie. a lot of people wont agree here thought...i totally recommend that movie, since its my 3rd all time favorite (first being 1982 Poltergeist and second, 1986 Aliens). i give Village of the Damned, a 10/10
