Children Of The Damned │ Clive Powell
In this edition of Angel Watchers I am featuring the 1963 classic film "Children Of The Damned". This movie is actually the sequel to the "Village Of The Damned" that was released in 1960. Both of these films were loosely based on the novel "The Midwich Cuckoos", written by British author John Wyndham. Clive Powell plays the part of Paul Looran, the leader of the children. I have to say that "Children Of The Damned" is one of the most frightening and intense movies that I have ever seen. Much of this is due to Clive's enigmatic and extremely otherworldly persona. Needless to say, this is Clive's movie. It is interesting to note that the children in the movie are clearly implied to be Christ-like advanced human beings, complete with virgin births, and the raising of the dead. Unfortunately though, the children are destroyed because society is not able to accept them due to ignorant paranoia. Safe journeys to all the fans of Angel Watchers, wherever you may be.
