    An average horror film with some bad acting but a suitable amount of creepiness. Good alternative to most of the rubbish on TV on Christmas Day.

    What a brutal brutal movie this is. Really creepy, extremely well done, and not at all for the faint of heart. It’s really intense with some great practical effects. I cant believe I’ve had this one sitting on my shelf for ages and never watched it. Definitely worth a watch if you can handle it.

    In a battle between horrible adults and awful children, who will you root for? I found myself just hoping that a lot of people would die in entertaining ways, and it doesn't disappoint on that level. In addition to the terrible characters, it also has an overbearing score and the flashy direction doesn't really fit, but it's fast paced, nasty, and has a good creepy ending, plus it's set around Christmas. The positives just about outweigh the negatives, but I'd better not spend too long thinking about what might have happened to the cat...

    Comfortably the least Christmassy horror movie ever made. I have no idea how they managed to produce the thing, in the snow and with child labour regulations in consideration, and frankly, my rating is more for how impressively they pulled it off than for its intent of relentless horribleness.

    The child actors are superb and making the characters both dangerous and endangered provides endless, utterly febrile terror. The grown-ups are less grand and it's only a shame that Eva Birthistle's…

    Kids get sick and start attacking the grown ups.

    Only thing interesting about this was the resulting moral dilemma for the adults.

    This movie is as equal parts frustrating in falling into typical horror tropes, as it is trying to understand the actors mumbling their lines with English accents.

    As you could probably guess from the title, THE CHILDREN deals with creepy ass kids, but it's not your typical creepy ass kid movie you've become accustomed to. During a holiday getaway, Elaine and her husband Jonah and their three kids, come to visit their in-laws at their isolated country home. And soon…

    Definitely worth the attention of horror fans, this nasty little movie is all about a group of kids who become infected with some virus that then makes them . . . . . . . homicidal. Before anyone can notice and palm them off to an unsuspecting babysitter the kids are offing the adults and terrorising those who start to realise what may be happening.

    While it's far from the best horror movie in recent years where this movie impresses…

    Filme de terror competente. O diretor soube extrair das crianças o inferno "comum" da bagunça que os pequenos fazem e leva esse estresse para os pais a níveis absurdos ao transformá-los em pequenos psicopatas. Merece elogios por não perder muito tempo debatendo as razões do horror porém ás vezes peca na lógica por trás das ações das crianças: por vezes elas parecem agir não só como psicopatas mirins, mas psicopatas mirins fazendo pose e suspense de modo a ficar estranho…

    A definite 'takes place during Christmas and not a Christmas film'. The violence (when it shows up) is nasty and the snowy location is moody, but everything else lands flat. The characters, especially the whinny teenage lead, are like nails on a chalkboard and the story never moves beyond what feels like the second act.

    Every parent you never want to meet, home schooling and gold stars if you eat your peas. I can see the children's point of view in this movie. A decent watch, but I got lost as to which kid belonged to which parent.

    Two families gather to celebrate Christmas together. At first, everything is great and the children are all laughing at fart noises together. Soon enough, though, the children are watching their parents sleep and playing menacing xylophone solos and standing around in snowy fields and shit.

    This movie is not for the weak of heart. Or the strong of heart. In fact, if your heart is still beating you should probably pass on seeing The Children.

    Don't even try to pretend like this is a Christmas movie.
