Editorial Reviews

Ann Turner wrote and directed this genuinely creepy tale. Celia Carmichael (Rebecca Smart) is a lonely nine-year-old girl growing up in the Melbourne suburbs in the late 1950s. She is the victim of several traumas that led to horrific results, and she suffers from nightmares from a book read to her at school. For a spell, her troubles are abated when a new family moves in next door with three children for Celia to play with. But her parents forbid her to play with the children, because the parents are members of the Communist Party.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a horror film but well worth seeing February 27, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had never seen this film but know it was sort of pushed as a horror film, which it really isn't, although it has some horror overtones at times. Celia is a little girl growing up in Australia in the late 50's & she doesn't do well with disappointment. This is actually a great film, and kind of an odd choice for the "Katrina's Nightmare Theater" series, since it's more a sort of coming-of-age film, but it also deals with how cruel people can be to each other, and what that cruelty can lead to. The DVD looks great and is well worth having, and the film is well done & quite well acted. Definitely a winner and well worth seeing. 4 of 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ever so good February 20, 2009
Format:VHS Tape
Despite not being a horror film as advertised, this film is still an amazing piece of art. The acting is flawless and never fake, and considering the obscurity of this film from Australia (Its not British)which never had a DVD release, its truly amazing. The story is very gritty, brutal, and has many subplots unrelated to the main plot which keep up the feeling of the events taking place in a real world and not just made up for the screen. For example I loved the threat of the national communism party sub-theme. I recommend this for serious film watchers, not for casual mindless violence film watchers though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent child acting all around February 20, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
I think the 'child of horror' is just a gimmick for video release - the copy I watched says 'child of terror', and I don't recall any such tag during the theatrical release. Hardly a horror movie, the story of Celia is very similar to Heavenly Creatures; children driven mad by the stupidity of the adults they are supposed to look up to. Excellent child acting all around. I give it a six (of seven).
