TheChildren.jpgCompetition time again on Filmstalker, and I know you love these competitions, but this one's rather special, it's the British horror film from the writer and director of WAZ (Filmstalker review), Tom Shankland who adapted and directed from the screenplay by the man behind London to Brighton, Paul Andrew Williams.

The Children tells the story of a Christmas holiday with parents and their children when the children turn on their parents in some terrifying ways. Here's the official blurb:

The Christmas holidays. What starts as a relaxing house party for two families coming together to celebrate the festive season gradually turns into a horrifying fight for survival as one by one the children mysteriously fall ill and begin to turn against their parents with increasingly disturbing consequences.

Starring Eva Birthistle (Ae Fond Kiss), Stephen Campbell Moore (Bright Young Things) Jeremy Sheffield and introducing Hannah Tointon.  

Written and directed by Tom Shankland (WAZ) based on a screenplay by Paul Andrew Williams (London To Brighton)
