Eureka Video asks WHO CAN KILL A CHILD?

On May 23, 2011, Eureka Video will release Narcisco Ibáñez Serrador's WHO CAN KILL A CHILD? (¿Quién Puede Matar a un Niño?) on DVD in the UK for the first time in its disturbing uncut form.  A British couple (DR. JEKYLL AND SISTER HYDE's Lewis Fiander and FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD's Prunella Ransome) travel to a remote Spanish island and find it completely and unexpectedly deserted, except for some deadly pint-sized terrors who are armed and dangerous.  Stephen King must have surely seen this film under its American International release title ISLAND OF THE DAMNED (in a version missing its disturbing opening sequence) when he wrote the short story CHILDREN OF THE CORN.  Tensely directed by Serrador - whose THE HOUSE THAT SCREAMED (La Residencia) is another neglected horror classic - and scored by Waldo de los Rios (MURDERS IN THE RUE MORGUE), WHO CAN KILL A CHILD? also stars Luis Ciges (VENGEANCE OF THE ZOMBIES) and Marian Salgada, the possessed tyke of Amando de Ossorio's DEMON WITCH CHILD (La Endemoniada).

  1. A great spot in reference to Childen of the Corn, Eric, I never considered that... I always knew this film under the slightly smoother title "Would You Kill A Child" as this was the title of the Derann pre-cert VHS that was doing the rounds in the early 80's... Under any title it's remains a minor masterpiece...

  2. Smoother, but the "Who Can" version quotes the rhetorical question in the film's dialogue.
