Storyline

In 1983 all children aged nine years or less fall into a coma at the same time. The children remain in the coma for the next 10 years and all children born during this time are born into the same state. Ten years later Tom Russel, who was imprisoned after killing a man in a fight, is released from prison and returns to his home town where his older brother has a son in a coma. That night all the children wake up but they are hellbent on killing all the adults. It soon becomes apparent that the children share a sort of collective consciousness and as one learns they all learn. As they get smarter they learn to disable motor vehicles and eventually to use firearms. A group of survivors, led by Tom and Jean, try to escape to the safety of a base located 60 km outside the town. Written by GPSJane

Intriguing opening, coma inducing conclusion
19 June 2007 | by (Redondo Beach, CA) – See all my reviews

This movie has an effectively mysterious and creepy opening, but the script writer obviously had no idea where to go with it.

The plague's effects on young children throughout the world is an interesting premise. Simultaneously, kids everywhere lapse into a clinically unexplainable coma. The movie seems like a well-mixed concoction of elements from "Village of the Dead," "Night of the Living Dead," "Children of the Corn," and others. After ten years of nightly seizures and under constant care during their long sleep, the mass coma ends as mysteriously as it had begun. The reawakened coma victims are now blood thirsty and violent teenagers, seeking out victims like a vengeful mob. They are not slow, clumsy automatons like typical zombies, and are very capable at using weapons, making them quite formidable and deadly.

Clearly, there must be some impetus for the coma and its violent aftermath, but neither the reason for the spontaneous coma nor the party responsible are ever revealed. There is a wafer-thin spiritual context offered, but even this is woefully poor in development or purpose. The movie is just a fight for survival sequence with lots of bodies and a predictable outcome.

Very disappointing ending makes the whole thing pointless. Don't bother with this one.
