    A very decent film that worked really well. It had a pretty slow pace that did the film good in building up the tension with what is going on with the children. It was also brave for a somewhat mainstream film with a few on screen killings of children that were very nice. The blood could have looked better. The snow always works well with blood but it really didnt look great in this film.

    I hated all the characters, I really did. Especially the curly headed kid, lol.

    Situated in a snow surrounded rural holiday mansion where two couples, with children, come together to spend the New Year period, this family meeting turns into a slaughterhouse when the infected kids decide to play Funny Games. Despite some gruesome deaths and the satisfying performance of the teenage daughter, I wasn't able to enjoy the proceedings, is that due to the small hangover or the movie quality, I'll leave that open.

    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...

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    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…
