At Haddonfieldhorror we are celebrating International Children's Day the only way we know how - by pointing out how scary these vicious, soulless beings can be with our Killer Kids reviews - @lcfremont looks at Who Can Kill A Child...
Beginning with a montage of documentary footage focusing on the effects of war on children, the movie is creepy straight out of the gate. As our main couple, Tom and Evelyn, travel before the birth of their third child, they come to an island that is strangely inhabited by only children. Well, there are a few adults, but they don't last long because these kids are homicidal maniacs. Seriously.
Though the cause of the children's homicidal tendencies is never fully explained, it is hinted that general apathy from adults has caused this, but it can also be transmitted via eye contact to other children. So, while it is disturbing enough to imagine yourself surrounded by killer children, it's even more disturbing to wonder if you would be able to kill a child to save yourself.
Kudos to all of the children in this movie. They are all legitimately creepy and they never break character. Often times, I find that you can see that faint childlike smile on most child actors despite how scary or terrifying they're trying to be, but these kids are proper creepy.
