Horror Review: Who Can Kill A Child? (1976)


A couple of English tourists arrive on an island where all the children have gone crazy and are murdering the adults.

Who doesn’t love a film about crazy, killer kids?! Well if you don’t then don’t read on, this isn’t for you.

Also known as “Island Of The Damned” and many more (look them up), the film is a very obscure Spanish release and has gained a cult following over the years and rightly so.
With the film playing more toward the psychological aspect it contains some very strong scenes that question your own morals and it serves it really well.
Director and writer Narciso Ibáñez Serrador did an amazing job, my favourite and most powerful scene being the machine gun scene.
The film was remade in 2012 under the title “Come Out And Play”, it wasn’t a terrible remake but it lacked the shock factor of this original release. 
“Who Can Kill A Child?” isn’t for everyone but I urge you to give it a viewing if you already haven’t.
