This may be one of the better recent horror movies I have seen. There were so many things I liked about it also!

First off... I've read the other reviews and do not agree with some of the comments. I will agree that the plot is a bit cookie cutter... the plot has been reiterated a number of times so I won't go into that.

But... the good things I liked are: The acting is not overdone... it's right on par. The special effects AREN'T the movie.. they enhance the movie. The plot is easy to follow, direct. All the characters fit into the story... no suprise characters. No special camera effects that took away from the movie.

Simply stated... this is a more traditional scare fest. But I happen to like those.

Oh man, this is serious seismographic horror and the creep factor is off the scale.

The production values are spine chilling and heavily atmospheric; you can almost smell the country air, old wood and pine needles.
The plot is rock solid and the opening scenes; accurately conceived and disturbingly realistic, instantly convey the premise and set the mood for the tragic aftermath that inevitably follows.

There are the usual ingredients for this type of horror story; a small town in the middle of nowhere, long dark backwood roads through a dense and ominous forest, a dilapidated log home with a bad past and scary reputation and spooked locals who like to quote scripture.

Ingenious use of the Biblical Passover theme.

I was totally with the kids right from the beginning, I could completely relate. You couldn't pay me enough to live in a place like that, I am so serious.
This movie is scary and never loses momentum; yet it never cheats the viewer by brelying on predictable and mind crippling cliches.

Excellent character development keeps pace with the plot and the few moments of unintended humor is always a delight.

I'm not sure what's going on with that mother, but I think she is either seriously stupid or in delirious denial in la la land.
I would be like saying......listen honey YOU live here if you want, I'm staying in a town with a population count that way exceeds 2 digits.
Thank you very much!

I bought this mainly because Scout Taylor-Compton, who plays Laurie Strode in Rob Zombie's Halloween and Halloween II is in it. I was surprised at how good it was. It's kind of creepy the first couple of times you see it, but then it's alright.

The movie starts in the early 1900s in a coal mine in Pennsylvania where a group of kids are accidentally buried and killed in an explosion. About 100 years later, a family, Karen Tunny and her two daughters Sarah (Scout Taylor-Compton) and Emma (Chloe Grace Moretz) move to an inherited house from Karen's recently deceased husband near the old mine. The house is full of issues and a mysterious guy comes at night and smears blood on their door. The blood protects them from the children, who are zombie ghosts. The zombies are believed to be a legend. Emma goes out into the woods unsupervised and claims to have met a girl named Mary, but no one believes her. Sarah meets new friends there and one night, they are attacked and only Sarah survives. The other three are torn apart and eaten. Sarah and Karen are chased and end up at the mysterious guy, Hanks' house. They are attacked but the zombies' target is the landowner, Carlton, who is a descendant of the people responsible for the accident. The zombies kill Carlton and Emma shows up with Mary, one of the zombies. The zombies say they won't kill anymore. Later, Karen, Sarah, and Emma move away and Mary and some of the children now live in the house.

The bonus feature, the commentary, is very insightful and the director describes the film as a kind of dark fairy tale, which I can agree with. The zombie children are kind of creepy, moving in groups and attacking with their pickaxes and shovels. The makeup used is creepy in a lot of scenes.

Regarding Wicked Little Things, what purpose does the story serve? Entertain the viewer, explore an idea or does it do both? In this case, the story does demonstrate entertaining elements.

What is the central idea from which the action derives and unfolds? Is the central idea that of retribution? If so, then this film main purpose serves the sense of entertainment for which a viewer seeks fulfillment.

It seems, for the result to be cinematically good there must be a detailed mental vision in the screenwriter for a sense of direction needed by both director and actors. Was the vision at the screenplay's inception conceived with detail? What is the point of this story? Is the point that retribution is cross-generational?

Making a good film is a difficulty of realization, a rare accomplishment of achievement, let alone an expensive one. Many things about this film invite the wishful thought they had been done better. Criticizing prompts the sudden sense of self-importance. There is no sense of self-importance here in this writer.

Yet the film seems more of a distraction than anything else. Many questions suggested by its story remain unresolved. Yet, if the zombie children are seeking reprisal, does that make them "wicked?" If they are wicked as the title says they are, then, are they punishing someone deserving of their lethal, cannibalistic justice?

Maybe what is so memorable about this movie is how ordinary it is. But, who am I to criticize?
