Joseph Losey – The Damned AKA These Are The Damned (1962)
An American tourist, a youth gang leader, and his troubled sister find themselves trapped in a top secret government facility experimenting on children.
Originally put off by the science fiction elements of this work-for-hire project, director Joseph Losey emphasized more personal themes of violence, modernity and social control in telling the story of a cadre of radioactive children held prisoner at a secret military base. The result was a hit with British critics, until then cool to the American in their midst, setting the stage for Losey’s undisputed triumph with The Servant (1963).
