Epilogue: Circuitous Cuckoo

The Midwich Cuckoos came out in 1957 and was quickly adapted to film. In 1960, Village of the Damned was released. The film’s eerie, sinister blond children reappeared in two more films and have influenced everything from the Simpsons to pop music and comic books. The X-Men series, for instance, features the Stepford Cuckoos, created by Grant Morrison (the occult-loving crazy man who breaks new ground with every comic he writes). The SC is a group of (originally) five mutant sisters who mirror both The Stepford Wives and the creepy children from Village of the Damned.
