Winter must be cold for those with no warm memories — that famous quote from that famous Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr movie. Glad I got plenty of them from last summer. And all the previous ones. Enough to keep me warm for a lifetime, most especially on bleak autumn days like the ones we’re having this week.
Back in the 80’s and the early 90’s, my siblings and I, along with my kiddie cousins would watch lots of movies during the summer break. One of the few horror movies that made an indelible mark in the psyche was “Village of the Damned”. I had long forgotten the title, actually. I just googled, “horror movie kids with white hair” to find the title and some video clips. I even found out that it was already a remake of the original from 1960. Thanks, Google. Looks even creepier in black and white.
I’m not usually into scary movies. But kids like to be spooked by nature. Aside from the spooks, what made it interesting for me was that it starred Superman, a.k.a.Christopher Reeve. I’d watch anything with Superman in it. Also in the cast was Luke Skywalker. Not a big fan, though. Just shared for a bit of trivia.
