Pat Benatar's song "Hell Is For Children" is used to set the film's theme. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

What I think about this movie.
7 May 1999 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

'Children of the Night' and 'Little Ladies of the Night' are both excellent movies. They show us what is really going on in the streets, and the fact that there are children that need homes and need to be loved. They both brought tears to my eyes.
