12 Days of Christmas Horror: Day 8 – The Children (2008)

21 December 2016 5:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Children, 2008.

Directed by Tom Shankland.

Starring Eva Birthistle, Hannah Tointon, Stephen Campbell Moore and Eva Sayer.


Two families get together to celebrate Christmas and usher in the New Year, but a strange illness seems to be spreading around the children. Things soon take a horrifying turn as the illness turns the children from sweet little angels into murderous little devils, forcing the adults to fight for survival against their beloved children.

Let’s face it, we celebrate Christmas in such a grand colourful way for the benefit of children everywhere, with parents working their arses off to make the holiday a truly wonderful time for their little ones. Well, I don’t celebrate Christmas for the sake of children, mainly because A) I don’t have any children and B) I really don’t like the little sods.

So imagine my joy/horror to find the subject of today’s review, »
