Film 107: The Children

An effective chiller from Tom Shankland, who also directed Waz, from a script by Paul Andrew Williams, who made The Cottage.

This is a nicely gripping film with a simple but sound premise and, commendably, no attempt to explain precisely why these things are happening. A good cast playing well-rounded characters, with a quartet of good child actors. My only quibble is that fast-paced editing on most of the shocks makes it actually quite difficult to see what happens.

Nevertheless I enjoyed this one.
