Before I start this review I have to speak the truth: I am biased because I love this actor.

That being said, I can say this is easily one of my favorite movies. It's based on a book called "The Midwich Cuckoos". I believe it is something of a cult classic and has been referenced in modern horror films and TV shows, such as American Horror Story. This movie does creepy in a kitschy way with psychic children walking around with tacky blonde wigs and blank expressions, much to the horror of the townsfolk, who try desperately to control them. The villains are supposedly these sinister children, but I find myself cheering for them. It can be enjoyed simply as an entertaining horror movie, but I believe this movie has a deeper meaning hidden within it, if one chooses to look for it.

I have always enjoyed this movie since first seeing it in the early seventies on Saturday afternoon T.V. I still like watching it today.
