A relaxing Christmas vacation turns into a terrifying fight for survival as the children begin to turn on their parents.

LONDON:- 6.30 p.m. on the 27th of November in a secret London location with Hannah Tointon, Jeremy Sheffield, Eva Birthlistle, Rachel Shelley and Tom Shankland in attendance.

FRIGHTFEST HITS THE ROAD. The biggest success at FrightFest’s Halloween ICA all-nighter was director Tom Shankland's fantastically scary The Children. Deafening applause greeted our surprise world premiere that literally raised the roof. FrightFesters clearly know their stuff because further glowing praise has been heaped on The Children ever since. UK critics and attendees at the recent American Film Market love it just as much too.

As a result of the amazing FrightFest reaction Vertigo Films and FrightFest have got together and are bringing The Children to a cinema near you. Tom Shankland and members of the cast, along with our very own Alan Jones, are packing their suitcases and heading out of London to share one of the best horror films of the year with you all.

An interview with Tom at FrightFest’s Halloween ICA all-nighter done while his film was screening, and also the Q & A after the screening can be seen on Frightfest TV over on the FrightFest web site. (BTW excuse the dodgy colour in the Q & A bit. The lighting in the ICA was not the greatest.) Also, visit the films great looking web site here.
