“Who Can Kill a Child?" My Classic Halloween movie pick this year also known as: ¿Quién puede matar a un niño?
A highly underrated flick from Spain. Think 1976 a young British couple on holiday on a small island off the coast. I’m glad this one hasn’t been remade yet, although there was a remake in development with Diego Luna attached but from the looks of it it’s not happening. Child is a great example of how to use silence and negative spaces in film to both create real tension and build a more natural sort of fear. There have been alot of comparisons of Child to Village of the Damned but I have to say I like Child way better. It’s much more bleak and simple.
Go see Take Shelter if you can. Michael Shannon again is quite brilliant.
The film and script are a great examples of how just a simple idea can be ten times more scary than any CGI monster-shark-or masked killer.
The real fear is that we all are the bad things we see in the the world. And that’s all I can say-I’d hate to give away anything from this one.
(Excuse my short rant here-at the moment I kind of feel sick.)
a nice sentiment
