Wicked Little Things (2006)

Directed by J. S. Cardone. Written by Boaz Davidson and Ben Nedivi. Starring Scout Taylor-Compton, Chloe Grace Moretz, Lori Heuring, Ben Cross and Geoffrey Lewis.

Plot: undead children come back to seek revenge.

In 1913, a mine collapses with a bunch of children inside. All of them die. 90 some odd years later, a woman (Heuring) and her two children, a hormonal teenager, Sara (Taylor-Compton) and a gooddish, if not overly curious, youngster, Emma (Moretz) move to that same mining town, in a house where some of the mining kids lived. Weird things start when a man smears blood on their door that the mother would prefer he not do. He explains it’s necessary, but she doesnt care. Then, Emma starts ranting and raving about her new friend Mary that no one really ever sees. And then Sara and her friends are attacked.

There’s a good story somewhere in here and a good motive, too, but the plot holes weigh it all down. And are they zombies or ghosts? Cause they’re dead and all, but they don’t completely act like one or the other. The rules are whack-a-doodle. And DJ really didn’t like the end. It left open too many questions.

My score: 47. DJ’s score: 39.

  1. Well said about this movie. There was awesomeness in there somewhere, especially with Chloe Grace at that age, since I think she was a much better starlet than adult actress. But there was too many holes in the plot, the rules were all over the map, and the ending was utterly dreadful.
