chillingly creepy and unflinchingly confrontational

Unapologetic downbeat horror story.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

A completely unheralded classic of bleak 1970s horror cinema.

Slant Magazine

Apesar de plagiar A Noite dos Mortos Vivos e do mau gosto dos créditos iniciais, o filme cria um clima de horror extremamente eficiente.

Audience Reviews for Who Can Kill a Child? (Quin puede matar a un nio?)

I love the topic and the hilarious brutality of the film. It's a great idea, from what I can tell it gained a lot of inspiration from Lord Of The Flies. It's a what if scenario and the execution was nearly perfect. It felt like Hitchcock, then Polanski and trailed off into its own feel.

a powerful film but... were those scenes from the holocaust and other war-torn regions in the opening really necessary? that felt exploitative to me. and it's ¿quién puede matar a un niño?

½

feel a bit queasy about the opening credits using what seemed like a full 5-7 minutes of historical footage of killed, injured and starving children...but after that, this was a great thriller; its style moves from the newsreels to a news-travelogue look to basically following the perspective of the married protagonists, and this situates the heros' self-defense in the context of children dying in adult games; the deranged children were both creepy killers and creepily innocent at the same time
