After all the residents (human and animal) of the quaint English village of Midwich go mysteriously unconscious for 4 hours one day, all of the women of child-bearing age awake to find that they are pregnant. When 12 otherworldly children are subsequently born – all on the same day – the fun really begins. The wonderful George Sanders gets to play a sympathetic and heroic character for a change and he does it with terrific grace as the children’s chief advocate. Faithfully adapted by German director Wolf Rilla from John Wyndham’s spooky novel (“The Midwich Cuckoos”) in gorgeous black and white, this eerie classic still has the power to chill -- and the last scene will have you holding your breath!
