Someone needs to tell these people that this film was already made in the 80s as BEWARE! CHILDREN AT PLAY (not that the original was any better). A band of feral children cannibalize the countryside on their quest for blood and power, as the surviving members of their latest attack struggle to survive. There is a decent amount of gore in this little shocker, but after a bloody intro, the characters and plot just can't keep it together. The audience is introduced to a series uninteresting and poorly acted players while following a dizzying camera that literally loses focus at several points. The merry band of meat-eaters all look pretty goofy, with their emo haircuts and Ambercrombie loin clothes. There is very little believability in any of the cannibals, but if you are willing to suspend disbelief the lead matriarch does serve as a creepy enough baddie. As a smaller Independent entry, it makes for an OK twist on THE HILLS HAVE EYES, but the forced sensationalism and comic gore don't make up for the bland characterizations and thin plotting. Its a mixed bag here, folks; it is a watchable effort with some pretty good FX, but it won't be winning any awards.
