Sub-Genre- Creepy Kids
In Attendance- Me
Cast Members of Note- A bunch of creepy little kids.
What's it about?- A couple decide to take a two week vacation on some crappy little Island, only to find the place inhabited by evil, and possibly possessed little kids.
|Awww, how not cute.|
I wont spoil the ending here, but suffice it to say that one of the kids doesn't make it.
|He isn't sleeping.|
It's a well made film for the 70's... and were it not for the dumb as a box of hammers main characters, I'd say it's among the best from that era. I just cant buy anyone leaving their pregnant wife alone in an abandoned town while they go around looking for, and finding creepy shit. It did greatly add to the tension though.
|Yeah, you're trapped.|
The Downright Horrendous- A baby killing it's mother from inside of the womb is pretty fucked up. Sickle-pinata with granddad isn't very sweet either.
The Gory- Plenty of bloody corpses are laying about; An old man gets beat to death off screen; a game of sickle-pinata; kids mowed down by a machine gun.... there's plenty of age-inappropriate carnage here, folks.
The Naked- Some naked corpse boobs... nothing exciting.
|Those creepy little corpse rapers!|
What did we learn?- If weird shit starts to happen and you don't get the hell out of dodge, you deserve death; also, fuck the police.
C+ As a horror movie, I give it an A; it's creepy as hell and the premise is genuinely terrifying... however, the absolutely moronic behavior by the lead actors in the face of danger brings the film down a few grades. It's worth checking out for sure, but i guarantee you'll be yelling "leave already!" at the screen way before they get smart enough to realize it on their own.
|Every. Last. One.|
