Customer Reviews

Everyone keeps going on and on about the "bad acting," the "horrible special effects," and the "lame plot."

If you see BCAP, you will bear witness to some of the worst on-screen detecive work ever filmed as the "good guys" in the film attempt to find the culprit.

All these people that are rating it 1 because it has bad special effects and isn't scary, they just don't get it.

That's what I love about Troma movies, in fact, this was the first Troma movie I've ever seen. Yes, you WIMPS might find "Beware! Children at Play" boring, disgusting, and offensive but you people must learn to not take most movies seriously. With one of the BEST finales in cheesy horror history, I'm boosting the rating up a half a star and am hoping that a sequel will be made IMMEDIATELY! . ROCK ON! I LOVE THIS MOVIE!

This little gem was apparently lensed independently and then picked upo by notorious shlock-pushers Troma for distribution. I can handle "Mother's Day" "Bloodsucking Freaks" and "Class of Nuke 'em High" from the boys of Troma, but this one takes a little more patience and stomach than I may have.
If you want poor acting, a horrible plot and even worse effects, I can't think of a better place to send you than BCAP. If any of these actors worked outside of this film (or maybe cable access) I'd be highly surprised. The plot and script was probably hatched between commercial breaks during Monday Night Football. The effects are weak even by Bollywood standards circa 1981.
IF you must know, the "film" follows the tale of a father and son who meet tragedy on a camp out. When the dad's ankle is snared in a bear trap and the son unable to retrieve help ( I thought he was pretty lame, even for an 8 year old) the near death father falls into dementia and encourages his son to cannabalize him for survival. Oh, all while the school teacher father is quoting Olde English or "Angel Accent" or Anglo Saxon lore . Naturally years later, the kid runs loose through the backwoods of the "New Jersey Bible Belt" (where?!?) terrorizing the God-fearing townfolk and kidnapping other kids for his flesh eating cult.
If you see BCAP, you will bear witness to some of the worst on-screen detecive work ever filmed as the "good guys" in the film attempt to find the culprit. Personally I don't think these pseudo-intellectual wannabe sleuthes couold solve the "Jumble" puzzle in the local newsrag, but painfully they work through the mystery and burn some valuable film time that could have been wasted on the bad effects.

The film is introduced by Llyod Kaufman as having a trailer deemed so controversial in it's depiction of children killing adults that it was booed at the Cannes Film Festival and half the audience walked out. That sounds like a bad joke I heard before. What does it take to offend a French person?...Or how many lightbulbs does it take to screw a French person?

The opening of the film is a father/son camping trip gone wrong. The father slowly dies after getting stuck in a bear trap and he tells his son to eat him spawning a cannibalistic cult of little children. And everything after this is screwier. The father was a professor that taught Anglo-Saxon poetry, or as the dimwit town sheriff affectionately refers to as "Angel Accent poetry", and this leads his son to believe that he, Glen Randell, is now "Grendel" from the poem "Beowulf". There are a variety of other bizarre explanations for the children's behavior in the convoluted plot involving the Sacrifice of Abraham's child to God amongst other things. Basically, the children disappear from the town, start a cult, hunt adults, and eat them. Sorry if this is confusing folks, but I watched the film and still don't get it. This is the most I could try to understand without falling asleep.

Unfortunately, as interesting as the premise sounds, the film is quite boring. It tried to be smart and I give it credit for that much. The SFX are good is some parts and bad in others. There are some scenes that try to make the mark, but fall short. One involves the young boy cutting open his father and eating his heart. At least I think that is what it was. The editing was strange and I am pretty sure it was not a real boy doing this for legal reasons. The stomach resembled an empty flap and a hand went in and pulled out a round, brown lump.

I love Troma movies, even though most of them are bad beyond belief. This movie is almost a direct rip off of Children of The Corn. However, you get more gore and bad acting with Troma. The kids are not as freaky as the Corn series. I must admit this movie was kept short but it felt like it dragged on way to long. The trailer might have got booed but it has all the good parts and is less then two minutes. The last ten minutes are the only reason to watch it, although thats not saying much. If you collect Troma films-then you have it but if your looking for a good horror film, look elsewhere.

This is an insane movie. There is no doubt about this. My sicko friends love this, especially the ending. It has to do with a guy who grew up in the woods luring kids into a cannibalistic cult, where they sacrifice adults. It's stupid as all hell, but it's so much fun to watch. The ending is a laugh riot (though it probably shouldn't be) where all the adults band together and slaughter their own kids. It's gory, it's cheap, and it comes with a free spatula! Ok, it doesn't come with a free spatula (good marketing idea though), but I'm willing to forgive Troma because they've been so good to me all these years. To quote the movie, "Will you touch me now, Uncle, the way Grendel touched Mother?" Have fun kids!
