John Carpenter, Greg Nicotero talk Village of the Damned in Blu-ray bonus feature exclusive

The Master of Horror and Greg Nicotero on how they gave their young cast evil eyes

Posted on

The latest John Carpenter film to be given the collector’s edition Blu-ray treatment by genre imprint Scream Factory is 1995’s Village of the Damned, out April 12. Starring Christopher Reeve and Kirstie Alley, this remake of the 1960 back-and-white chiller — an adaptation of John Wyndham’s novel The Midwich Cuckoos — concerns a California town where a group of women become mysteriously pregnant with children who turn out to be something other than human.

The Scream Factory Blu-ray boasts a generous array of bonus features, including a new documentary called It Takes A Village: The Making of Village of the Damned. You can see an exclusive clip from that film featuring Carpenter and makeup effects wizard-turned-Walking Dead director Greg Nicotero, above.
