Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things

The title is the best thing about this cheaply-made horror film. Despite some clever dialogue and amusing performances, the bargain basement production values, amateurish lighting, and annoying music make it hard to follow much of the time. For a time it seems like it might develop into a pretty clever dark comedy, but it quickly degenerates into cliche. Falls short of the cult classic it's been made out to be.
