The Child

The Child

Directed by Robert Voskanian

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.

A very stupid good movie. Its worth watching. Some of the scenes made no sense.

Delightful. An old school drive in/double feature cheap movie. one camera, a sound booth and views of Old California. Some of the worst helpless female screaming, confusing night/day shooting, monster costumes and a final scene that goes on and on. It makes absolutely no sense but worth watching as a lost genre.
