You know I love me the classic movies. I will pretty much watch any movie if it's in black and white and made before 1965. As much as I hate scary movies, I'm even down to watch a scary classic movie because they were truly scary, not just blood and guts and lunatics in masks running around terrorizing horny teenagers.

This weekend's movie at the International Museum of Art is a classic, scary-as-hell movie. I would definitely not watch this movie at home because I'd probably be watching it at night, but on a Saturday afternoon, yeah, I'd go see it. The movie is one of those mess-with-your-head movies that will be scarier when you turn off the lights to go to sleep. You'll see the image of the freaky kids every time you close your eyes. What freaky kids? Oh man, are you in for a wild ride.

'Village of the Damned' opens on a sweet little village where everything and everyone seem to be picture perfect. One lovely day, that all changes. The freaky stuff starts when the residents of the village suddenly fall asleep. They sleep for hours and then wake up. Everything seems to be ok and no one is worried about the mass nap but then all of the women in the village turn up pregnant. And they all give birth at the same time. And all of the kids grow up way faster than they should and all look eerie as hell with white-blonde hair and glowing eyes.

Seriously. If you like scary movies, you need to see this movie.

The movie is free and after you've caught your breath, check out the Museum. It has a lot of interesting exhibits, and the architecture and furnishings are breathtaking. You can even enjoy the fantastically well-priced concessions. They have popcorn, soft drinks, and candy for a buck a piece so you can take someone with you and will probably only spend about $20 for the whole afternoon.
