Movie Info

The Forsaken director J.S. Cardone returns to the helm for this tale of a widowed mother of two who discovers a dark secret about the land surrounding her newly inherited mountain home. When her husband died and Karen Tunny inherited his family's remote mountain estate, she never could have foreseen the terror that was about to be unfold. It was 1913 when a tragic mining accident claimed the lives of numerous children who were forced to descend into its darkened depths, and their restless spirits are still rumored to roam the area around the sprawling home. Now, as Karen and her two young daughters attempt to pick up the pieces of their shattered family life, the dark history of the land deemed cursed by the fearful locals stumbles screaming into the glowing moonlight of the present as the children who were once buried alive come out to seek revenge.
R (for strong horror violence and gore, language, and some teen drug and alcohol use)

Cardone's supernatural thriller is an utterly derivative and cliché offering...

Cinema Crazed

Neither this nor that, Zombies (aka Wicked Little Things) offers up a creaky old forest-load of horror cliches but never quite sees the wood for the trees.

Feels like something that was written, shot and glued together over the course of one drab and uneventful weekend.

Wicked Little Things wastes a lot of potential; but if you approach it more as a supernatural drama and not so much a horror film, it's not altogether bad for the price of a rental.

It is a fun undead romp with very attractive girls, creepy kids, and a good amount of the ole dark and chunky. If that's all you want out of it, you won't be disappointed.

Audience Reviews for Wicked Little Things

It was okay. Not as scary as I thought it would be. I wouldn't recommend to watch it though.

I was excited by the trailer, but the actual film left me disappointed. The bare minimum of a plot and a lack of any real scares or suspense hobbles this movie.

'Wicked Little Things' was annoying. After banging my head, to no avail, against my LCD monitor (perhaps thusly the ineffectiveness) for two days, that is really all I can say about this movie. The production, cinematography, and acting values are there but the story is too weak and illogical to match the 'effective scare' this movie is going for.
To zombie fans, file this under the "ghoul" category with "Creepshow" as these undead kids are conscious little buggers hellbent on revenge for the awful fillicide they endured in the collapsing mines.
The leads are played well, and sometimes the makeup is effective. The lighting is pretty much 75% on, so why wasn't I that thrilled? Because the execution of the story was poor, and again another zombie flick falls short.
