WHO CAN KILL A CHILD?

On a vacation away from their family, Tom (Lewis Fiander, of DR. JEKYLL & SISTER HYDE) and his pregnant wife Evelyn (FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD’s Prunella Ransome) sail to an island off the coast of Spain that seems deserted… until its children emerge from the shadows with the blood of their parents on their hands… and hatred in their hearts for every adult.

Unflinchingly horrific and unapologetically downbeat, Narciso Ibáñez Serrador’s WHO CAN KILL A CHILD? was heavily censored for its American release in 1976 as ISLAND OF THE DAMNED. Dark Sky Films is proud to present the complete film, uncut and uncensored, for its long overdue American DVD debut.

Holy!! A heavy dose of childhood trauma gets served up--this time the adults are on the receiving end!

WHO CAN KILL A CHILD? is a splendidly creepy flick that only the 70's could deliver. It's quite a bizarre premise, plus it poses an extremely tough moral dilemma that has no easy answers.

Tom & Evelyn take a vacation to a small island off the coast of Spain. They quickly notice their isolated little getaway spot is totally devoid of adults. Just a bunch of kids running around, acting pretty strange.

Their deepest fears are about to be realized. These children are playing some deadly games. They eventually witness some adults get tied up and tortured, just for their amusement. Broootal!

The most disturbing thing about this situation is the innocent appearance of these boys and girls. They have such clean little smiling faces--just completely adorable. Until you get to know them.

This movie starts off a little slow, but once it gets going--look out! It's guaranteed to make you uncomfortable. Some unsettling murders that will really get under your skin. Bloody stuff!
The couple are placed in such a tough predicament--kill these poor little children, or be killed. What do you do?!?

A must-see horror heavyweight from the 70's. It reminded me of the original Wicker Man, and it's almost as good!

One of the best horror films you'll ever see in your entire lifetime. This is the complete version. A brilliant and inventive film. It's possible that Stephen King was inspired by this gem to write children of the corn. Who can kill a child? is an astonishing film, and the last reel will give you a deep trauma that will haunt you for years. 1 billion thumbs up.

"Who Can Kill A child?" is a disturbing, shocking film from Narcisco Ibanez Serrador, the Spanish director who bought us "The House That Screamed." It is by far the best entry in the killer kiddie horror sub-genre of the seventies, much better than the tasteless "Devil Times Five" or Stephen King's ludicrous, anti-Christian "Children of the Corn," which proceeded it by nearly eight years.

The plot of "Who Can Kill A child?" is this: The children of a remote Spanish island have packed together like wild dogs and slaughtered all but a few adults. A vacationing British couple arrive on the island discover mutilated bodies of adults. They also witness children savagely committing acts of murder against their parents The Brits must escape before they are also butchered.

The acting is superb, the atmosphere is tense, and the island is sunny and gorgeous. It is quite shocking to see cute Mediterranean children, with pixie faces, laugh and run as they "play" their cruel "games." It has a Twilight Zone ending that lets you know that the horror has only begun.

It is never quite clear why the children become murderous and that is why I only gave the movie four stars. The children appear to communicate almost telepathically to each other their desires to kill their parents. They can even transmit their killing desire to unborn children.

The movie also tries to make a political statement. At the beginning, black-and-white film clips of actual news footage are shown. They depict children dying of war and famine. Perhaps the Spanish children of "Who Can Kill A Child?" are seeking revenge against those who have oppressed them.

Wow, this one completely caught me off gaurd. This is a movie more people should know about, but do to it's heavily censored release it has not been availible for many years in it's full uncut form. Now thank's to Dark Sky film's we have a beautiful print of a beatiful movie.

Opening with about ten minutes of documentary footage of numerous war's throughout history and horrific images of mass graves. It show's images of human suffering and list's the numbers of the death-count of children involved. Right off the bat it left me with an uneasy feeling throughout the whole movie because of that opening.

Most of the movie focuses on two main character's that come to a small island off the coast of Spain to get away for a while only to find out that the children are the only one's left on the island. It focuses on these two main characters throughout the movie and uses character development most of the time to really start to feel for these character's. The acting performances are great and really carry the film through it's entirety. The children are extremely creepy and actually scared me a little bit. I never thought I could be scared of a child but Narcisco is such a competent director that he pull's it off great.

The most impressive thing about this movie though is the direction, Narciso Ibanez Serrador is an extremely talented director that really know's how to tell a story and make a very scary horror film. I look forward to checking out more of his work. This is one of the few European film's I've seen that almost out-does most American flick's, technically speaking.
