The real question is why the Library doesn't have the original hour and seventeen minute black and white version that gave George Sanders his most sympathetic role. Nothing succeeds like b/w to convey the desperation and claustrophobia of the situation. Screenplay by Sterling Siliphant who also wrote the screenplay for "In The Heat Of The Night"

It's not his greatest work, not even in the top 5, but Village of the Damned is respectable work by John Carpenter. It has an interesting cast, great atmosphere and beautiful Northern California locations. The evil little kids are sufficiently creepy, and there's subtext o'plenty. If you're a fan of Carpenter, it's definitely worthwhile.
