Yup, I am never having children! Even at the beginning with the children running and screaming around made me frighten.

Pretty average flick, Hannah Tointon was very good as Casey. 2.5 out of 5.

Kids can be creepy enough as it is but, this chilling and sometimes brutal British horror takes it to a whole new level. A very effective and disturbing tale of a Christmas vacation get together that becomes a nightmare when the children start to exhibit increasingly strange and soon violent behavior. What begins as a possible cold spreading from child to child soon starts to take on some aggressive then violent characteristics. The young couples are soon faced with a parent's worst nightmare as it appears their kids want to kill them. And that's what makes this horror flick work so well despite some flaws is the simple questions it poses... what would YOU do if you had to fight for your life against your own child? Could you? The parents in this film are confronted with that exact dilemma as their own children become homicidal with nowhere to run in their secluded country house. A disturbing and well made horror flick. 8/10

Oooo MFG, what evil, creepy scary children...I love the way it was shot. It made everything seem to build up to the moment where you are yelling at the screen to watch out. This was a great scary movie... I give it a 9 out of 10 Loved it!!!!!

this movie was fairly slow to begin but o my god did it escalate quickly. this was a great film and very warped. i thought it was fairly original, other then the terrible ending. but these children are very creepy and not to mention the brutal deaths! 8********

Horrible little monsters in this. Good watch if you can get past the screaming brats!

For those of you that say there was no explanation, you were not paying attention. Remember when the little girl was sleeping and the camera zoomed in on a black spot on her pillow. You then saw micro organisms as if under a microscope. This is the cause and apparently is spread by contact. All the little kids were playing with each other. That is the best explanation I have, what do you think?

This movie was much better than I expected. I was expecting Village of the Damned but was pleasantly surprised. I guess there was some kind of parasite or bug that turned the kids into homicidal maniacs. Pretty cool movie. I was rooting each time one of those little fuck##s got what they deserved. The Brits do make somer very good movies once in a while. This was one of them. I give it a 8/10
