I'd watched this somewhere around my 10th birthday and couldn't remember it all that well, so yesterday for my 30th it seemed to be the right choice to watch again. I really did enjoy it but then again murderous children are pretty frickin' entertaining, especially Elizabeth Hoy as little Debbie and Billy Jayne (Scott Jacoby from Bad Ronald's step-brother) as little Curtis. The story revolves around three children who were born on some sort of solar eclipse but for their 10th birthday they seem to go on a sadistic killing spree. This is wildly entertaining and the killings are often quite fun and in the spirit of slashers like Friday the 13th, so horror fans should be quite amused. Particularly because of the style and emotion the children show....very memorably evil and over-the-top in a really great way. This one is also noteable for having comedienne Julie Brown in a smaller role but she repeatedly strips if that is your type of thing. Well worthy of a birthday viewing for any horror fan, I seriously doubt I'll ever forget this one again, charming!
