Fun 80s murderous child horror movie. It's as cheesy as you'd expect, with some over the top performances from its young cast, but it also manages some nice moments of genuine suspense. Great entertainment for cult movie fans.
Mostly boring variation on The Midwich Cuckoos/Village of the Damned. After a while it becomes unintentionally funny given the number of handguns that are apparently just lying around the characters' houses.
The film rightly abandons its half-baked Zodiacal mystic explanation for its trio of pubescent psychotics - ultimately, they are just depraved for kicks. That angle works. It adds a gritty immediacy to the awfulness of it all, and the kid actors are good enough to keep it plausible.
