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

a plague of intelligence...
7 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

On the other hand this movie my friends really liked. The film has a slow build up that I personally appreciated. it helped me take the film seriously and feel for the characters and their situations only an unintelligent person would think otherwise. Clive Barker produced this surprisingly entertaining film about all the worlds' children below 9 going into a comatose state for ten years and all the children born within the period are born in the same state. Than they awake and begin murdering all the adults over 20. Part gruesome zombie flick, part mainstream horror-actioner and part indie religious. The film has a lot to say and is pretty successful when saying it. It takes itself very seriously as it's audience should. The consequences of the events that happen are explored through suspenseful sequences as well as emotional ones. Halfway through I wondered why in the hell this film didn't hit theatres. it's a competent effort and with all the crap thats out there why deny us a good film. And than the answer became all too obvious it's too smart for the mainstream horror audience.Although it has some great scares and some good gore it's not all gore and execution it has story and character growth throughout the film. And remains satisfying on an adult level. It only failed to fully excute its potential in the last five minutes. Although symbolic and I understood it. I opted for a more enthralling finale. But the film is small and personal and thats the way it should be viewed
