‘Village Of The Damned’ Coming To TV

In 1957 John Wyndam wrote the novel “The Midwich Cuckoos“.  In 1960 (with the titles changed to Village of the Damned) Wolf Rilla made it into a movie.  John Carpenter followed suit in 1995 with another movie.  Now, in 2020 it has been announced that the iconic story will receive the mini-series treatment, and I couldn’t more thrilled about it!

Broadcasting Corporation Sky and David Farr are behind the eight-part mini series that will stay close to the novel-source material.

Wyndham’s 1957 story centers on the sleepy English village of Midwich, where a strange sequence of events culminates in the community’s women falling pregnant with alien children with glowing eyes and otherworldly powers.
