An intense, occasionally frightening horror thriller that deserves to be seen by all fans of the genre. The only false note is the opening with real footage from the holocaust which does not fit (despite the film's title)
Inconsistent but reasonably good. The protracted lead-in to the core of the film works surprisingly well as we get comfortable with the characters who will eventually be endangered. Primarily this movie deserves attention for bursting taboos regarding violence by and toward children in unsettling yet credible ways. I'd rather like to see a remake - a good remake of this could be chilling.
One of my very favorite horror films. A subtle and thoughtful movie, anchored by two amazing lead actors and a Kubrick-esque sense of production design. Definitely up there with the original NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD.
Narciso Ibáñez Serrador, whatchu smokin'? Like all the Gage scenes in "Pet Sematary" combined into one movie, only with earthier, more elusive European kids. Love the SPFX blood in this movie, a poetic orange-red Gak. The British actress in this reminded me of Jane Goodall, willowy, sensitive & stylish. A surprising traveloque horror show: 4/5!
(2.5) The idea of killer children is a great one and the casting is good too, especially the smallest killer baby, but the film is quite unbelievable and yet not so interesting on a methaporical level. Goes well with chips.
Una pellicola che sa disturbare per ciò che rappresenta. La forza, oltre che nel messaggio abbastanza diretto e condivisibile, sta nelle numerose scene di violenza dei bimbi, i quali, senza perdere la loro innocenza, compiono atti crudeli. Molto disturbante e agghiacciante. Originale una delle ultime morti e l'uccisione dei bambini. La regia è di qualità e con il buon montaggio riescono a creare una buona tensione.
