Ten years have passed since the world's children fell into a coma. Tonight they're waking up and all hell is breaking loose. An unholy battle between the generations is being waged, and time is not on the side of adults.
Revolves around a character named Jake Gray and his friends that have been playing a deadly game called "The Pathway", which eventually spirals out of control and threatens a worldwide epidemic of violence.
A genetically engineered dog escapes from the science facility where it was created. A family takes it in unaware of its deadly instincts which soon emerge. The scientist who created the dog tries to find it before its too late.
In 1983 all children aged nine years or less fall into a coma at the same time. The children remain in the coma for the next 10 years and all children born during this time are born into the same state. Ten years later Tom Russel, who was imprisoned after killing a man in a fight, is released from prison and returns to his home town where his older brother has a son in a coma. That night all the children wake up but they are hellbent on killing all the adults. It soon becomes apparent that the children share a sort of collective consciousness and as one learns they all learn. As they get smarter they learn to disable motor vehicles and eventually to use firearms. A group of survivors, led by Tom and Jean, try to escape to the safety of a base located 60 km outside the town.Written by
This is not a great horror film - but it's not a super stinker either. Here's the deal: - If Texas Chainsaw Massacre is your favorite type of horror, you will not like this one at alllll. The gore and zombie fight scenes are not very impressive.
If you like more "use your brain" type subtle horror films, this one does make you think. It offers no clear explanation for why or how, but it does offer a few glimmers that make you wonder that the writers/film-makers have some point they are trying to get across. Unfortunately, even if you come to a conclusion here (as a couple of other reviewers have - and I agree with their conclusions), it's doesn't help the fact that the movie is just kinda there through 75% of the film, despite the very interesting initial premise.
