Wicked Little Things – After Dark Horror Fest – 8 Films To Die For

“Recently widowed Karen Tunny and her two daughters, Sarah and Emma, move to a remote mountain home which Karen has inherited from the family of her late husband. However, she is unaware that the home is situated near an old mine, the site of an early 20th century tragedy in which many children where buried alive…”

Animal sacrifice, a creepy abandoned house in the woods, the strange woodsman who seems to know what’s going on, and the spirits of children who were trapped in a mine, what more could you ask for.

A mother and her two daughters go to live a home she has inherited after her husband’s death. The house is a wreck with barely any electricity and running water, but that doesn’t stop our teenage heroine from making out in the backseat of a firebird on a lonely road.

There appears to be a curse on this land from the children who were killed in a mining accident hundreds of years earlier. Now they seem to want revenge for the misdeeds suffered against them. They roam the night in an ill tempered band killing anyone they come across. Why their hungry for blood isn’t really explained, nor is the reasoning for their feasting on pig carcasses or the bodies they slain. I guess their hungry. Of course at the rate their killing people there would no one left in this town after a week let alone the amount of time their supposed to have been around.

But anyway… The youngest daughter falls in with the wrong crowd and gets lost among the cursed children. Mother and daughter must figure out a way to save their own lives and get the daughter back. Of course they need the help of the crazy mountain man to understand what to do.

Actually this movie isn’t too bad. It has some overtones to the Amityville Horror where the house is build on cursed ground. Or at least it’s sitting on cursed ground now. Although the “undead” children look like a bad rendition of the “Little Rascal” and their motives for killing just anyone seem a little ridiculous the movie has a good pace and keeps things moving. The movie is more bizarre than scary, but it’s decent one to watch with the lights off. It’s not a bad way to spend an hour and a half.
