Dawson Versus The Damned., 28 October 2007
Author: Coventry from the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls

Although the premise isn't original or innovating ("Village of the Damned", "Children of the Damned", "Who Can Kill a Child", "The Children of Ravensbeck"…), I'm always enthusiast about a horror movie revolving on murderous – and whether or not zombified – children, but you always have to bear in mind that a concept such as this could be bound to a lot of restrictions as well. Let's face it, the idea of murdering children and/or children getting murdered remains a fairly sensitive topic and especially nowadays filmmakers don't always have the courage to depict everything in great detail. Another big issue is that the scripts are rarely ever strong enough to come up with an explanation that is simultaneously disturbing and plausible. "The Plague", which is somehow linked to the creative writing mastermind Clive Barker, is fairly adequate and satisfying when it comes to dealing with the first issue (there are some very graphic child murders here), but it miserably fails in the plotting department. I just finished watching the film five minutes ago, but please don't ask me to summarize the plot. The film benefits from a handful of really powerful sequences and an occasionally unsettling apocalyptic atmosphere, but the screenplay is incredibly disorderly, incoherent and it explains absolutely nothing at all. On a seemingly average day, all the children on the earth under the age of 9 fall into a coma. Twice a day, like clockwork, they all start twitching together but the reasons for that are anyone's guesses as well. Then, as spontaneously as they fell into a coma, they all awake ten years later as mad zombies and promptly begin to exterminate all the adults for … you guessed it … no apparent reason whatsoever. The film follows a small group of people's quest for survival in a quiet little US town, among them an ex-married couple (Ivana Milicevic and James "Dawson" Van Der Beek in a totally unconvincing performance), a couple of cops and a pair of adolescents who're spiritually linked to the children. The sequences illustrating the zombie children prowling the deserted streets for adults to kill are reasonably effective and creepy, as well as the make-up jobs on their faces, but the film never achieves to be truly terrifying.
