3.0 out of 5 stars More Psychological than Anything, November 2, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Children (Ghost House Underground) (DVD)
I'm not a big fan of 'horror' movies. I find them to largely be formulaic and boring after a while. And predictable. I watched this one expecting a lot of the same, but I find myself actually reacting to it. That's a plus for the film. The actors, most of which I'd never heard of, were kind of dull, at least the adults, which may have been more script than casting. The kids though, they truly were creepy when need be. I'm not a parent, but I've been in charge of kids before so that part of the film resonated with me. The fact that these kids start attacking the parents starts to get into your head after a while.
Yes, the plotting is ridiculously slow. Yes, there are moments of screaming at the tv in frustration. Yes, you will probably wonder what the point of the movie is after a while. But, The Children is actually half decent for an indie film with probably little budget. It will get into your head because it's kids and kids can do creepy things even when you want to protect them. I kind of actually liked this movie even if other people are panning it. If you prefer psychological horror over gross out (though there is plenty of that too) than watch this movie.
