Who Can Kill a Child possibly has the most grueling opening credits ever. Made up of documentary footage from concentration camp victims of WWII and other wars that followed. Mostly the footage contains child victims. My girlfreind was balling through the opening credits. God bless her for watching my movies!
Although the film starts out on a grueling note......which i too found extremly hard to watch, but focused on the subtitles, so i wasnt paying attention to detail...thank god......the middle drags a good bit.
A couple on vacation wants to get away from the tourist heavy mainland, takes a boat to an island 4 hrs. away. Once there, other than a few children the couple find the island "deserted" After a very long investigation of the island...and i mean long....the husband discovers all of the adults have been and are still being killed by the children.
This film is good but the slow middle and the frustrating decisions the husband makes prevent Who can Kill a Child from being a real gem. The husband by the way looks like a cross between "Andy Travis" from WKRP in Cincinatti and Peter Sellers. Odd.
The ending gets really fucked up as the question "WHO CAN KILL A CHILD" is answered......Andy Travis Sellers! Thats who!
The film is very gritty. And in no way is the lush style of director Narciso Ibanez Serrador earlier effort The House That Screamed apparent. But maybe it benifits from that? The House that Screamed by the way is a MASTERPEICE!
The major flaw of this film is its opening credit sequence and the hint through out of a political message.....like there would be no wars without adults or something like that. Its never a fully devloped point. And its a point that is totally unnessasary. But still the film manages to be an above average watch.
solid final entry. Only get the dutch import. It includes the infamouse vein in mouth scene missing for ever.
The unique story and Avatis masterful way of building upon the suspence really sets this Giallo apart from the rest. Its a bit of a slow crawl but the story keeps builing until the end when this film becomes truly frightening. Seriously, the ending was as creepy as it gets. Not an easy feat in this genre.
This was the first film ive seen from Pupi Avati and i look forward to uncovering more from this guy. He really crafted a great film. This is one I would definatly mention when talking great Giallos. This is sophisticated sleaze!
O.K cannibal flick involving two girls who's parents were convicted for cannbalism. Not as good as i hoped it would be. But still fun non the less.
First Flight is a damn fine DC animated film. Too bad the live action version of the character couldnt have been this good. I was really impressed with not only the action and animation but the adult tone as well. Sure it has its kiddy moments but when you least expect it BAM someone snaps a neck or gets impaled. Congrats to all involved!
