Village of the Damned (1995)

village of the damnedBy Scott Goldfine

Christopher Reeve and Kirstie Alley star in director John Carpenter’s insipid, grossly miscalculated remake of 1960’s horrific “Village of the Damned.” This tale of a small town whose women give birth to a group of evil children suffers from a laughably bad screenplay and is generally bereft of the requisite eeriness.

Carpenter had it right with “The Thing,” but goes terribly awry here. Rated R.
