Fright Fest + Wicked Little Things


This is another one of my FEARnet finds and I thought it was pretty good. It's a combination of a zombie movie and a ghost story movie all rolled into one. It's not your standard zombie apocalypse type of movie and these are not your mindless, run-of-the-mill zombies. They're zombies with a vengeance.

Back in the day children were used in mines in this rural Pennsylvania town. As if that wasn't bad enough, the guy that owned the mines was a total douche and decided to blow the tunnels with the children still in them. Nice, huh? Yeah, well, the kids didn't think so either. Nearly a hundred years later stories haunt the local town about zombie children that come out at night to eat the flesh of the living. But they're more goal-oriented than that. They want revenge. They want the blood of the guy that buried them alive. And they just may get it in a relative down the channel.

Wicked Little Things has the ambiance of a ghostly movie and the relative grossness of a zombie movie. It's not over the top and it's more about mood and scares than the gore factor which is a giant plus in my book. For a different type of zombie movie, one that might actually scare you, Wicked Little Things might just be the one to do it.

My partner is a horror blogger, so I have suffered / enjoyed / scared myself stupid through many horror movies. I haven't heard of this one though, and it sounds pretty good - I'm a big fan of genuine scares over gore too. Thanks for the heads up.

It is a pretty decent movie. Some cheese in it but I think that's to be expected in horror. But it's nice because it's pretty light on the gore and heavy on the spooks.

Lauren, what's your partner's blog?
