Phenomena in artwork: The Alien

Aliens can be considered children born to women of Midwich, became pregnant after the anomaly. There are only nine (ten is born dead), and they differ from normal children of color and structure of hair, nail shape and eye color that varies depending on mental state. The analysis showed their genetic similarity, as if they were born from the same father. Tenth stillborn child looks like an alien, unlike the other children.

Aliens stick together, wear the same (or similar) clothes and hairstyles. Mentally, they are far ahead of their peers. The characters in the film several times talking about the presence of the children of the collective mind, but in their actions it does not appear (in contrast to the literary source and the film in 1960, in which they even studied at a time).

As they grow older, children are divided into pairs, obviously with a hint of the future offspring. The child left without a pair, different from the rest of greater susceptibility to emotions and attachment to mother.

All the kids-the aliens have supernatural telepathic abilities, which when activated they begin to glow the eye, and the greater the effort made by the child, the brighter they glow.

Phenomena in artwork: Servodata

Kids-the aliens have pronounced telepathic abilities: they can read minds and control other people's behavior. At the same time attempts to read the thoughts can be closed, imagining the ocean or a brick wall.
