12 Days of Christmas Horror: Day 8 – The Children (2008)

The Children, 2008.

Directed by Tom Shankland.

Starring Eva Birthistle, Hannah Tointon, Stephen Campbell Moore and Eva Sayer.


Two families get together to celebrate Christmas and usher in the New Year, but a strange illness seems to be spreading around the children. Things soon take a horrifying turn as the illness turns the children from sweet little angels into murderous little devils, forcing the adults to fight for survival against their beloved children.

Let’s face it, we celebrate Christmas in such a grand colourful way for the benefit of children everywhere, with parents working their arses off to make the holiday a truly wonderful time for their little ones. Well, I don’t celebrate Christmas for the sake of children, mainly because A) I don’t have any children and B) I really don’t like the little sods.

So imagine my joy/horror to find the subject of today’s review,

The Circuit pilot review

Louisa Mellor Aug 25, 2016

Pulling writers Sharon Horgan and Dennis Kelly are back with a wry, understated comedy pilot about middle-class awkwardness…

Adeel Akhtar and Paul Ready’s most famous scene in Dennis Kelly’s conspiracy thriller Utopia saw the latter gouge out the former’s eye with a spoon. The Circuit, written by Dennis Kelly and Sharon Horgan, reunites the pair for more torture involving cutlery. And placemats. And Le Creuset saucepans. And giant prawns of unspecified variety.

The Circuit is a character comedy set against the peculiar middle-class agony of the dinner party. If Channel 4 orders a series, each episode will presumably take place in the home of a new host Come Dine With Me-style. If you can picture Come Dine With Me populated by the cast of Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?

It says something about a comedy’s world outlook that its sanest, most

Brooklyn review




Fancy checking out one of the best films of the year? Here's our review of Brooklyn, starring Saiorse Ronan.

In amongst the showier performance-led movies to come this awards season, it's reassuring to see an unassuming coming-of-age story like Brooklyn receiving its fair share of plaudits too. Based on Colm Tóibín's novel of the same name, Brooklyn follows an immigrant's trans-Atlantic love song, set between south-east Ireland and New York City.

In the 1950s, Eilis Lacey (Saiorse Ronan) is a young Irish woman living in Enniscorthy who gets the opportunity of a lifetime when kindly priest Father Flood (Jim Broadbent) arranges for her to travel to Brooklyn and take up a job at a department store. Of course, Eilis jumps at the chance, but leaves behind her elder sister Rose (Fiona Glascott) and her mother Mary (Jane Brennan) for the glamour of America.

She becomes desperately homesick,

Life’s a Breeze | Review

The Little Foxes: Daly’s Heartfelt Family Drama Pleasantly Rendered

Arriving with a bit more investment than its airy title would suggest, Lance Daly returns to Ireland for his latest film, Life’s a Breeze. A simple, working class fable, Daly fills in the schmaltzy pot holes with dry humor, relying on his comfortable cast to sustain the tale’s relatable charm. Pared down to a brisk eighty or so minutes, Daly’s film never outwears its welcome and proves to be a great showcase for the superb Fionnula Flanagan.

Times are tough for all over, and an extended Dublin family centered on matriarch Nan (Fionnula Flanagan) don’t seem to have many monetary options available to them. Her eldest son, Colm (Pat Shortt) is still living with mum and in his late forties, the house a mess with decades of old and useless belongings cluttering the rooms and halls.

The State Within TV review: unknown knowns

A riveting BBC political thriller offering one of the most trenchant explorations yet of the sick symbiosis between big government and big business. I’m “biast” (pro): love Jason Isaacs and Ben Daniels

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I wasn’t planning on writing anything about this. I only came across it on Netflix (it’s available in the U.S. and the U.K., but not Canada) because I’m crushing on Ben Daniels (just inducted into the Boyfriend Hall of Fame) and there were no Law & Order: UK reruns on at that moment and I needed a fix. And this had Jason Isaacs in it, too! Double yum.

But oh my god, now that I’ve finished all seven episodes — it’s a limited miniseries, so that’s all there will ever be — I feel like I

‘Amber: The Complete Series’ DVD Review

Stars: Lauryn Canny, Eva Birthistle, David Murray, Levi O’Sullivan, Justine Mitchell, David Herlihy, Declan Conlon, Emily Nagle, Stella McCusker, Shauna Griffith | Created by Rob Crawley, Paul Duane

If there is one type of television show we’ve got a lot of right now it’s the drama. While mostly concentrating on murder and politics there are some though that look to hit a much more emotional nerve by using the subject of children. Amber is one of the latest to use children as the subject using the theme of abduction.

When fourteen year old Amber Bailey disappears her family are left in turmoil. As they search for her at her friends they find she lied about visiting there and with no sign of her return it’s left to the police and pleas to the public for any news on where she could be. As the days go by

Amber DVD Review

Creators: Rob Cawley, Paul Duane

Starring: Eva Birthistle, David Murray, Lauryn Canny, Levi O’Sullivan, Justine Mitchell, David Herlihy, Declan Conlon, Emily Nagle, Stella McCusker, Shauna Griffith

Running Time: 199 minutes

Certificate: 15

We recently saw Wales unsuccessfully try and capitalise on the demand for serious crime drama with Hinterland and now it’s time for the Irish to give it a go with Amber, a four part series which deals with a young girl going missing. The show decides to follow the family and other people involved rather than tackling things from the police perspective. This adds a more emotionally charged story, and sometimes goes in perculiar directions which unfortunately don’t get anywhere. Despite these narrative decisions as well as jumping back and forth in time, the series is still highly predictable from the dialogue down to character arcs and reactions.

Perforamnce wise we have a beautifully crafted 199 minutes. There
