Good production values, bad everything else
19 November 2010 | by (Williamsburg, VA) – See all my reviews

Author John DeWolfe (Michael Robertson) heads with his wife and young daughter to a puritanical town (in Jersey?) to visit relative Sheriff Ross Carr and his family. The town has been struck by a series of abductions of children, one every two months with the Sheriff's daughter among them. Seems a child abandoned in the woods a decade ago has been recruiting kids to his cult that worships the epic poem Beowulf (really). This is like CHILDREN OF THE CORN but set in the wilds of New Jersey and minus the corn. Director Mik Cribben (who has a large supporting role) stages moments and dialog that come of more as a comedy, like the town lynching party that just stands around for hours. Sadly, he was trying to be serious. He does get credit for throwing around some blood and the all-out kid massacre during the film's final scene. Nothing much else there really. Picked up and released by Troma.
