Recensioni e valutazioni

  • the_mentaculus's rating of the film The Children

    The actual concept is stupid (nuclear waste turns children into zombies whose hugs burn people alive!) but th--- no actually that's a great idea. Toys with the familial anxiety that adults may have to murder their own brood to survive, eventually leading to onscreen gun- and swordplay. Clearly there's some angst and small-town Americana social chicanery at work, hidden in a work triumphantly perverse and tasteless.

  • Rocco's rating of the film The Children

    A pretty fun little drive-in shocker, made basically back-to-back with Friday the 13th and featuring a similar score by Harry Mandfredini. The killer hugs of the black-nailed kids lose their novelty awful quick and the totally unsurprising final twist is further spoiled by taking so damn long to play out.
