When scientists discover six highly intelligent children with destructive powers in different parts of the world, there is disagreement on how to deal with the potential threat they pose.
In this less-than-thrilling sequel to Village of the Damned (1960), the six children of assorted nationalities with deadly extra-sensory powers escape from their respective London embassies.
The alien kids demonstrate their lethal gifts against the armed forces who are trying to destroy them, in the name of world security.
However, despite a literate script (based on John Wyndham’s novel The Midwich Cuckoos) and thoughtful direction by Anton M Leader, the film has nowhere to go and quickly runs out of steam.
