The Child

The Child

Directed by Robert Voskanian

svg-play Trailer

Young Alicianne arrives at an isolated old farmhouse to look after her new charge, Rosalie - a curious little girl who lives with her equally disturbed (and disturbing) father and surprisingly normal brother. But it soon becomes clear that Alicianne is going to be the one in need of assistance, as it transpires that little Rosalie wields the uncanny power to raise the decrepit residents of the local graveyard to conduct her wicked bidding... An ethereal nightmare cut from the same cloth as the likes of Messiah of Evil or Let's Scare Jessica to Death, The Child - from director Robert Voskanian and producer Robert Dadashian - is a superlative example of dream-logic terror and an essential entry in the cannon of 70s American horror.

The artwork is accurate: It's one of those films in which the lead female and lead male have to fight for their lives and while the male does that, the female just holds her head and cries and moans. The male has to TELL her - while fighting - to DO SOMETHING and then she does, but then goes back to holding her head and crying and moaning. (insert eye roll)

I was very impressed by this one. Special effects and mood were really good in this. Tense last scene. Decent acting. Meh story. 4 Stars check it out.

Fun practical effects and make-up. Wacky nonsense watch with classic charm. 3 out of 5 pulp-oozing Skulls -Josh from Loathsome Things: A Horror Movie Podcast

I can't handle that music! I watched maybe 15 minutes and that was all I could stand. It looked like a good movie though.
