If you’re not willing to have any offspring, you’re certainly not going to change your mind after watching this movie.

It was supposed to be an idyllic New Year Eve, two families celebrating together. The children suddenly get sick, one by one, and then – go out of their minds. The meaning of ‘playing’ for those kids is no longer the same. They want blood!

What I enjoyed in this movie is the novel idea of breaking the stereotype of a sweet innocent child and putting a knife in his hand, instead of a teddy bear.
Also, the mysterious atmosphere and electrifying plot twists totally go along with the story.

However, I felt irritated by the completely illogical actions of the adults; they were just stupid. What’s more, the parents didn’t really took much care about the coughing, vomiting little boys and girls.
No wonder they got so pissed.

My rate: 6/10
