California: visit: Point Reyes National Seashore


Best to go back to the small-scale, black-and-white – but far more effective – 1960 original Village of the Damned.

Village of the Damned 1995 location: Point Reyes Station, California

Village of the Damned 1995 location: the village of ‘Midwich’: Point Reyes Station, California

John Carpenter’s disappointing remake of the modest British sci-fi Village of the Damned transposes the action to the same Northern California locations he used for The Fog, which also happens to be the director’s backyard.

This time ‘Midwich’ (the film is based on John Wyndham’s novel The Midwich Cuckoos) is the town of Point Reyes Station. More scenes filmed at nearby Inverness, and the picnic was filmed at nearby Nicasio.
