The Midwich Cuckoos

When the calendar page turns to October, we Rejects have only one thought: horror. To celebrate this grandest and darkest of months, we’ll cover one excellent horror film a day for the entirety of the month. That’s 31 Days of Horror and 31 Films perfect for viewing on a dark, chilly, October night. If you, like us, love horror and Halloween, give us a Hell Yeah and keep coming every day this month for a new dose of adrenaline. Synopsis: Based on John Wyndham’s book The Midwich Cuckoos, this film tells the story of a small village in England in which everyone in town mysteriously blacks out. When they wake up, all the women of childbearing years discover they are pregnant. When the children are born, they are immediately seen as different. Each one has blonde hair and disturbing eyes. The kids grow at an accelerated rate, and they seem to have a psychic bond with each other. As the children get older, a professor in town becomes their sole teacher, and the town is acutely aware of their emotionless nature. Soon, they start to develop strange powers, including the ability to control the actions of others and bore into other people’s minds. After a series of deaths, the people in the village try to find a way to get rid of the children.
