Zombies mixes the genres of ghost stories and zombies, and does it well: a recently widowed mother moves her two daughters to a house in the mountains which they inherited in her husband's will. The house is close to an old mine where many children died. At night the children come out to feed.
I was expecting a really low budget movie with weak actors but that wasn't the case at all. The effects are simple but effective and the plot well executed; characters have been well cast with the youngest daughter giving an oustanding performance. The film has some eery moments and a fair amount of gore. By no means is this is a classic but at under a fiver it is well worth a watch.
Now, misleading titles and cannabalistic gore aside (both if which are there just to compliment each other and don't really have a place in this film), this is actually quite a nice little ghost story for bedtime. If you can forgive the zombie faux pas, you will see that this film posesses all the nice qualities of a traditional bedtime ghost story. The plot is rather good, the visuals aren't bombarded with melodramatic music, it is quiet and gentle, with evil ghosts that you can sympathize with. It has the typical nightime scenes in the woods, old houses, old newspaper cuttings that tell the story of the children who worked in the mines. All these things are used well,and not overdone.
The gore is a bit too much, it is too obviously an attempt to gross you out, which is not needed. Personally, I feel that horror films have become so obsessed with being as gorey as possible, that cinema is really missing some good old fashioned ghost stories, this is one that I think is judged too harshly, okay, so it's not as good as the Orphanage, but it is worth watching.
The film is actually called Zombies -a misnomer, they are revenants or mylings at best which will annoy many zombie fans. ‘Wicked little things’ is actually the director commentary bonus feature in which its claimed to be based on a true legend [which in itself is a contradiction]. The film is fast paced and gives a good variation on the 'undead’ theme, although there is a bad 5 minute dip around the halfway mark. Characters come across as creepy so you don’t know who can be trusted. Yes, the plot can appear to be formulistic and you know the basic plot from the start, so you easily guess the ending. But it’s a question of who is actually going to die and the part of Emma is played so brilliantly you really fear for her safety.
Despite its flaws and the misleading title the film barely slacked its pace and was extremely entertaining. It has enough gore and stomach churning scenes to please almost all but the most extreme hard core fans. There are jumpy moments by the handful in the first half, but the end does fall into the predictable mode. Still worthy of a ***** rating provided your not looking for a Zed [zombie] /survivor movie.
Zombies: Wicked Little Things boasts quite the cast with young horror stars Scout Taylor Compton (Rob Zombie's Halloween) and Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass, Let Me In) alongside the legendary Geoffrey Lewis (The Devil's Rejects) who helps explain the legend behind the malevolent children; and the always impressive and underused Ben Cross (Dark Shadows: The Revival, Exorcist: The Beginning). My problem with the casting cropped up when Tim showed his face... it was Ethan from Hollyoaks (Craig Vye) sporting a ridiculous floppy hairdo and a ridiculous attempt at an American accent!
After viewing for a while, I was concerned with the title of the film since to my mind, these are not classic cinematic zombies and I am of the opinion that the makers have chosen this title simply to cash in on the popularity of the genre. The "zombies" here are not mindless shambling ghouls but vengeful undead children intent on killing those who enter the woods and searching for the bloodline of the man who sealed their fate. Don't worry fiends, there's plenty of flesh-eating to keep you going.
There's nothing overly complex about the plot or set up of ZWLT and ultimately, for me, the film plays out like a dark fairytale with appropriate moral messages strewn throughout the film. However, despite the fact that kids in horror movies are generally creepy and this flick has enough gore and death to keep it ticking along, it's just not scary on any level.Read more ›
