Zombies sneak up on unsuspecting viewers
17 October 2001 | by (Pontefract, England) – See all my reviews

We've all seen Night of the Living Dead and Dawn, and Day... most of us have seen Lucio Fulci's zombies, and some will have ventured into the Manchester Morgue... but if you like the zombie subgenre best check out The Child, a movie with a mid-seventies homemade feel, which springs some scary groping monsters on the camera in the last twenty minutes, and packs the rest of the running time with strange music, weird camera angles and warped acting as well. They really don't make them like this any more. The acting feels like the attempts of a schizo to pass for normal on a bad day. There's no attempt at realism because dry ice wafts around as soon as the heroine crashes her old-fashioned car at the start of the film. Old ladies who should just be side-line characters hog the script with eccentric non-actor habits. The camera tilts like a sick sailor. The music is Liberace vamping for Lon Chaney's stage show, alongside a deranged scorpion on a synthesizer keyboard. The story and characters are almost non-existent (although the lead female has 'problems'). It's like a fever dream before a scriptwriting session - better than a script, in other words. It refuses to become a normal movie and that makes it special. Watch it late at night but not too late...
