About this episode

We've met some pretty despicable villains throughout the previous 85 episodes of 100 Horrors. Mrs Vorhees invaded a summer camp and butchered people while they were on vacation. Mikey Myers invaded people's homes and murdered them while they celebrated Halloween. Freddy Krueger took it a step further and invaded people's dreams while they tried to sleep. Perhaps then, this is why the kids in Wolf Rilla's 1960 "classic" Village of the Damned did not seem to stand up to the test of truly frightening us as modern audiences. In one scene the antagonists realise that they are frightening an old shopkeeper, so they apologise and promise not to come back anymore. It just doesn't have that edge, you know? Anyway, tune in to this week's episode to hear some (as per usual) controversial scoring.
