  2. kartina obskura's rating of the film The Children

    if you search for something thematically similar but good - "who can kill a child"

  3. Evan Schafer's rating of the film The Children

    Talk about an heir apparent to Kubrick not only in style and execution but in the film's entire feel, giving us a gorgeous cinematography to capture the stark background of this holiday setting and music at a level worthy of Bernard Herrmann a la "Psycho". The children that are the title's namesake are equally as horrifying, completely turning on their adult counterparts in brutal ways. See it, worth every frame.

  5. Absentia's rating of the film The Children

  6. Laura Lavorato's rating of the film The Children

    As often with horrors the idea and the setting work. The overall delivery, I am not sure. Worth checking it out though.

  7. Marcus Killerby's rating of the film The Children

    Almost entirely illiterate when it comes to film grammar. 0 fun when it comes to the deaths. Not at all scary and telegraphs every plot development 10 minutes ahead of time. This probably deserves 1 star but I just don't care enough to hate it.

  9. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Children

    Los mejores momentos es en sus inicios, cuando no tienes idea qué pasa pero sabes que las cosas se pondrán muy feas, y de hecho así pasa. Lo que le falta a "The children" durante el tiempo de la matanza es tal vez más realismo, menos edición que oculte cuando los niños hacen fechorías. Para que le película teme mucho a la sensibilidad infantil.

  10. Íris Jordão's rating of the film The Children

    One of the best horror movies with children I've ever seen.

  11. jxn's rating of the film The Children

  12. Alcock Hitchfred's rating of the film The Children

    Very suspenseful and very underrated. The Shining reference was lovely!

  13. Bijoux Alexanderplatz's rating of the film The Children

    Too much screaming towards the last quarter. I like the general idea and the Christmas setting, but felt that 98% of any character development was attempted on only one character. It often works in horror films, but since the development wasn't completed it didn't work here.

  14. Tyler Aikens's rating of the film The Children

    The only reason the children succeed in so much murderous mayhem is because of every single adult is a weak, helpless pussy.

  15. Rabbit Room's rating of the film The Children

    Arguably the best "killer kid" movie ever made.

  16. MR. Universe's rating of the film The Children

    One of the best killer children films i have seen. Generally unsettling and scary. Betther then i thought it would be.

  17. Melvin Falconer's rating of the film The Children

    Not much to say, except that this movie is... so bad.
