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 shrieks of the world's most infuriatingly useless heroine combined with a soundtrack only a discordant elementary school orchestra could rival will ensure you spend the last half hour of this movie thinking that deafness might be a blessing.

Yes. Give this one a chance. Sure it's rough around the edges. But give yourself a few minutes to adjust, catch its wavelength, and have an excellent ride.

The acting is terrible but it still ended up being a fun watch.
