Wicked Little Things (2006)
Director: J.S. Cardone
Main Stars: Lori Heuring, Scout Taylor-Compton, Chloe Grace Moretz
Storyline: A mining accident back in 1913 has left the ghost of children behind
Review (Spoils): We have another film from the After Dark Horror-fest series, this one is also tied to the undead and ghosts. We have a mine in 1913 that used children as slave workers that had an explosion that buried the young ones underneath the rumble. We now move to the present with the young Karen Tunny (Lori Heuring) who lost her husband and has left her broke with two young girls. They move into a small broken down house that the mine once was near and they hear tales of zombies and tales to stay inside at night. Karen’s young girls get involved into the ghost tales and one of her daughter disappears.
We have children talking to ghosts, nightmares of child murders, the haunting woods and the broken mine and some sappily spooky zombie children. The story is nothing really new and the scares are limited as its all been done before. Nothing really new here…
Rating: The main characters are actually really good in the film the problem with this film is that the whole zombie ghost thing has been overdone by now and nothing really stands out.This type of film is not targeted I think to true horror fans that have seen it all but maybe for the younger faint at heart crowd.
