Killing children potentially not-so-desirable matter in circles of friends of terror. Definitely seeing innocent creatures including six children into killing machines is not so pleasant sight for some, especially when children are recipients of violence from the candidate their victims. To do an objective-as-criticism in British ' The Children ' should skip the above psychological Skopelos.

Evaluating free from all kinds of sensitivities in this film, we see that is a pleasant surprise of parikmasmenoy in recent years British horror cinema. Picking out a not-so-common threat in the field of horror, she of the spiral small malicious children, ' The Children ' axioprepestata stands offering something less than 90 minutes of genuine terror and bloody violence. Abusers of children, victims of adult parents. Really and just the idea of causing evil to thy parents creates a first shock.

The events take place in the snowy countryside, secluded in one of the two families. It is Christmas and holiday period which gives an even more unpleasant tone in dramatic events that will follow. The first signs of change are vomiting. Then some psarwtika close-ups of their eyes gives us to understand that the bloody party will soon begin.
