Unpleasant but not to be missed
Everyone who thinks that the “Children of the Corn”-films or boring stuff like “The Children of Ravensback” are cool horror movies about kids killing adults hasn’t seen this movie.
It starts off quite harmless, an American couple on vacation in Spain leaves the mainland to escape the other tourists. They go on a little island. What they (and the viewer) don’t know is that the children there have started to kill all adults on the island for no apparent motive.
The story may sound strange and hardly making any sense. Obviously, the German distributors of this gem didn’t understand it at all: the German video version got the title “Tödliche Befehle aus dem All”, “Deadly orders from space”, which is absolute nonsense because there is no science fiction in it! But the motive of the children is only secondary here. The film is a subversion of the thinking standards of people all around the world: Children are always innocent and adults destroy the world. And all this is made with an uncanny and creepy atmosphere that makes this film thoroughly unique. The only other “killer kids” film that is – positively – comparable with “Quien Puede Matar a un Niño” is the fourth and last segment of Jeff Burrs very good anthology horror film “The Offspring” (aka “From a Whisper to a Scream”).
Just as Serrador’s earlier masterly horror film “La Residencia” (see also my comment on that), this undoubtedly unpleasant film was ahead of its time and will forever stay a unique and unusual horror film.
Finally this obscure horror gem is available. Creepy, atmospheric n very very disturbing.
God bless the fellas at Mondo Macabro for releasing this n most of the obscure films on blurays. Had seen it in the late 80s n was searching for a dvd copy of this film for a very long time. This film was virtually unavailable officially for a very very long time. Finally saw this hidden gem. The scene wher one of the surviving parent narrates the story to the couple n the other scene wher the husband follows a child n sees a group of children hitting on the Piñata n the shocking twist.. these scenes were the only vague memories i had.
This film falls into the evil kids category like Village of the Damned (one of the first films to feature evil kids), Children of the Damned, etc. Who Can Kill a Child aka Island of the Damned is not an easy watch considering the violence it shows towards kids. I myself cannot watch any scene showing harm towards kids. Imagine the innocent kids who all suffer due to wars. The image of the three-year-old Syrian refugee, Alan Kurdi lying dead on the beach gave me sleepless nights. In fact, this film starts with an eight-minute documentary prologue showing the effects of World War, Nazi atrocities, drought, famine, ethnic violence, global apathy , partition of countries, civil wars, etc. on kids. After the 8 min documentary style prologue, the film shows an English couple Tom and Evelyn heading to an island for a vacation before Evelyn gives birth to their third child. The moment they land on the island, they see children behaving strangely n all the adults missing. The locations n the music added to the creepiness. There was something hypnotic bah the music. The acting of the couple n the kids were spot on, the direction was superb. The director must have really irked many fellas as he didn’t hesitate to show certain scenes n the ending was shocking for it’s time.
