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.

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.

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!

Format: DVD
Nothing can match 70's horror; the US & the rest of the world gave birth to some of the best horror films ever produced during the era of LSD, Charles Manson, and disco. Brilliant films such as "The Omen", "Rosemary's Baby", "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and international contributions from mastermind Argento such as "Deep Red" and "The Bird With The Crystal Plumage" really defined and shaped horror movies for years to come. Many of these terrifying films remain unprecedented. "Who Can Kill A Child" may not be an absolute masterpiece, but for anyone looking to discover a terrific gem of a thriller, this one definitely is worth a look. Well photographed, nicely scored, and well acted, "Child" avoids many of the "evil child" pitfalls that often plague the genre; mainly bad child actors with too much screen time. The film is smart to focus on heavy atmosphere and mood and the story itself intrigues without giving too much away. There's some true nastiness to the film, great settings, and a genuine eeriness and sense of dread pervasive through out. Check it out.

Format: DVD
After I watched this film from Spain, the first thing that came to mind was "Village of the Damned" combined with "Children of the Corn." There were elements of both if you really looked for them. But Serrador's shocker managed to come through as something entirely original.

In my opinion, he could've taken this movie to a whole 'nother level but I guess he would've had his film banned all over the world. It probably was up to a certain point. I mean c'mon: Just look at the title of the movie.

As for the DVD itself, I think Dark Sky did an admirable job with the transfer. Occasionally, there were some noticeable flaws to the film but you really have to have a sharp eye to catch them. Sound came out fine. You get some interviews which were pretty cool.

Note: If you're the type who needs excessive amounts of CGI with action scenes every other second and who admittedly has a low attention span, then move on. This film develops the two main characters for a better part of the movie.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
"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.
