If Your Life Was At Stake...Would You Kill A Child?

It's another gathering of the HorrorDads over at TCM's Movie Morlocks. This time around, Richard Harland Smith, Dennis Cozzalio, Greg Ferrara, Paul Gaita, Nicholas McCarthy and myself are taking on the 1976 Spanish shocker Who Can Kill A Child? This cult favorite is disturbing stuff and if you haven't seen it, do yourself a favor and put it at the top of your Netflix queue. After watching it, you'll likely wonder how eight Children of the Corn films have failed to generate even a tenth of the unsettling effect of this movie. This is killer kids done right.

Our discussion is chock full of spoilers so if you're unfamiliar with the movie, read at your own risk. Personally, I think a great film can't be truly spoiled by hearing plot details. If you haven't seen Who Can Kill A Child? yet, hopefully reading our thoughts on it will prompt you to go ahead and experience this disquieting gem for yourself.

One of my absolute favorites, even though I only first watched it a year or so ago. Disturbing in a very, very deep way.

Yes, it's a genuinely unsettling movie. I hadn't seen it prior to our roundtable so it was real treat to check it out.
