CHILDREN OF THE STONES
I came across an interesting British program from the 1970s that might be of interest to fans of horror - “Children of the Stones” (1977). It was produced on video tape so it has the look and feel of a Doctor Who episode from that period and it too was targeted towards children. But the story is creepy enough and complex enough that adults of this genre should enjoy it too.
The setup is familiar for British horror, a boy and his father come to a small English village where the local people act peculiar, as if members of a cult. Throw in a monolithic stone circle, Druids, weird chanting, atomic clocks and supernovas and you’ve got “Children of the Stones”. The father is played by Gareth Thomas who starred in “Blake’s 7” a few years later.
If I’ve perked your interest, you can get a copy of all 7 episodes on one disc via Netflix. I’ve seen it on Amazon as well.
