Village of the Damned

English countryside invaded by ill-mannered alien demons. Their fiendish plot of taking over the wombs of innocent women and their addlepated men is allowed to proceed unhindered! The Soviets handle their parallel situation with considerably more Putinesque flair. George Saunders great as usual. Creepiness is undermined by lack of dramatic tension. But there is indeed creepiness, delivered for the most part by the leader of the evil, evil children.
