A family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where an evil and spiritual presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from the past and of the future.
A couple of English tourists rent a boat to visit the fictitious island of Almanzora, just off the southern Spanish coast. When they arrive, they find the town deserted of adults, there's only children who don't speak but stare at them with eerie smiles. They soon discover that all the children of the island have been posessed by a mysterious force or madness which they can pass from one to another, and which makes them attack and murder their elders, who can't defend themselves because nobody dares to kill a child...

There is something wrong on this island and you're trying to keep it from me. If there is something wrong, then whatever it is, I think we should leave.

Now this film is twisted. Two young tourists who are madly inlove and expecting a child go to a island to relax only to find that the town is adult free and over run by savage kids. Children who have murdered everyone of their elders and have overthrown athority. Leaving these tourists to fend for their forsaken lives.... The cinematography in this disturbing movie is amazing. Apearently this film is a favourite of Eli Roth's. This film is a great companion peace to The Children Of The Corn (2009). I found this film to be quite interesting and it does bring up a good question if you had to defend yourself in a life or death situation could you kill a child?
