  Wonderfully wicked and nasty comes from Tom Shankland The Children. The children’s horror film The Omen has indeed witnessed time and again his resurrection. Whether it be in The Good Son, The Village of the Damned, or up to date The Orphan, Fall 39 or Hannah Montana, what better way than to hoard of evil, as the kids, which one would touch a hair? But what if they want to kill someone? Can you kill it, your own child? This question is The Children more than once. And one thing is certain: At the end of counting only you or your child …

The nuclear family to Elaine (Eva Birthistle) travels to her sister Chloe (Rachel Shelley) to the country to celebrate New Year’s Eve to the seclusion. They are all good things, except the little Paulie, who has probably caught something and needs to vomit. But the next day everything is fine again. Until the sledding accident happened and Elaine’s a bad man lies bleeding in the snow. Or was it no accident? And why the cat is gone? Casey (Hannah Tointon), Elaine’s teenage daughter, is the first, among the children feel a change. Because it does not take long and the kids turn full of deceit and hatred against their parents. Again taking advantage of that one trusts them no malice. Is

Unfortunately, the reason why the children running amok in the dark. It is a kind of virus, that much is clear. And that’s with explanations. At least the viewer has presented a bleak end that, as expected, can only be consistent. In addition, give the authentic and (unless they’re annoying) commonplace characters enough screen to mitzufiebern. The slowly-building basic tension, the good child actors and the effective camera settings are routinely used by director Shankland (WAZ). Young parents and people who can not see any blood or broken bones, should make the Children, however, a bow.
