Fun and overlooked
4 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought Wicked Little Things was a really good movie, in my honest opinion. I will say at some parts it seemed really unbelievable, and at others it seemed as if there was just not enough thought put into the actions of the characters, as it became mediocre, but overall it was exciting and entertaining with a nice premise, even though many commenters thought it was boring. I do not understand why so many comments are bashing this movie when other B-movies that are most definitely not better get much more recognition and praise. It's an excellent movie overall, and nothing more or less. Wicked Little Things provides great entertainment and mostly did not have many major flaws at all other than, like I said, being mediocre because of production value.

This is definitely worth a look, because you will not be disappointed with the outcome, regardless of what other comments may have you believe and if you know what you are looking for and getting into. Wicked Little Things is one of the best 1st Annual Afterdark Horrorfest films, and compared to a lot of other films in the 8 Films to Die For series, this is one of the best overall. As a movie, it's a darn good one, even though it's of course no masterpiece. It's just fun, and I am glad I own it.
