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

Decent entry in the killer kids genre, The Children (not to be confused with the corny 1980 film of the same name) tells the story of two families spending Christmas together in an isolated mansion when, for reasons never explained, the kids turn deadly. The Brits go places American films won't in their depiction of Doe-eyed tots getting stabbed and beaten as their frantic parents try to escape. The snowed-in location reminds viewers of The Shining and the plot owes a lot to the 70's horror flick The Devil Times Five. The pacing, acting, and special effects help this along until The Children reaches an ambiguous ending typical of the current trend in horror films.

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

this is the third time I watch this and it gets better each time. Creepy evil children and the panic in ensues. Loved it and wish there was a continuation, I'd be curious as to what a world like that becomes...

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

Very good Brit horror film, despite a slight lack of development in the plot, I found The Children to be a very well executed with very good acting on everyone's part, particularly the children. Very believable I personally enjoyed the lack of explanation which added to the sheer horror, and here in my view it worked to the film's advantage. Kuddos to Shankland for doing such a great job in casting all of the actors. 7/10

Oh My God! Whoa This Movie Is Definitely A Must See That's All I'm Gonna Sayy....(:

I love love loved it. Finally a good horror movie that kept me on the edge of my seat when the actions started until the end of the film. I had no clue who was going to die and when. The kids were so creepy and it didn't help that they were infected with some strange killer virus. The death scenes were intense and the ending leaves viewers to what they think happened. I give it a 9/10 just because I would have preferred it a little longer :)
