Don't Grow Up
Directed by Thierry Poiraud
In a youth center on an isolated island, a group of teens wake up to find no adults watching over them. After enjoying their newfound freedom and not really questioning why, the group suddenly discover a mysterious epidemic has turned all the grownups into violent, dangerous maniacs. If the teens try to escape their nightmarish circumstances, they will have to become the very things they don’t want to: adults. After his debut soccer zombie flick GOAL OF THE DEAD scored, director Thierry Poiraud stayed in the same lane for this fearsome follow-up. A SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE
On an isolated island, a group of teenage delinquents living in a youth center wake up to find themselves alone with no one to watch over them.
Cast: Fergus Riordan, Madeleine Kelly, Natifa Mai, David Mckell
An interesting setup and some strong performances all around from the young ensemble but it all adds up to not much in terms of plot or storytelling.
For a movie that could have been more 28 days later this was just dull and lifeless.
What a waste of a good idea.
Not a fan, the reasoning for the epidemic was never really explained. How did the kid at one point know the teen was going to become "one of them"? Or why were the group of kids trying to kill them? Also, none of the characters were particularly likeable. Would not recommend.
not very good
