TITLE: THESE ARE THE DAMNED
THESE ARE THE DAMNED
DIRECTOR: Joseph Losey
An ambitious and disturbing film that has been unjustly neglected. THE DAMNED contrasts the ultra violence of a teen gang led by Oliver Reed (theme song "Black leather, black leather, smash, smash, smash..") with the cynical official violence of a government imprisoning children in a subterranean radioactive environment as they are prepared to one day inherit a shattered post-atomic world.
ATOMIC HYGIENE: Cold War Short Films
This Bear Family Records/CONELRAD co-production takes its title from the primitive 1953 animated B&W "Target You" which relies too much on its fact-asserting voiceover.
