The synopsis: I'm not really sure of an accurate summary. However, this is what I've gathered from the internet. The movie is about a pack of demented/deformed children who love killing for their "mother". This "mother" has these disgusting pods on the outside her body from which the babies emerge from. These little creatures grow up into extra creepy children. Basically, anyone who pisses off the mom is brutally beaten and killed by one or more of these little monster children. The creepiest part: the kids always wear these snow outfit things with a hood. So all you see is their creepy little faces surrounded by a tightly fitted hood.
The significance: One of my earliest childhood memories involves this movie. Horrifying. I'm not sure how old I was, but I'm willing to bet I was under four. It scared the shit out of me, as I remember one particular scene in the movie quite vividly.
The scene: The only thing I remember about the movie is a scene where several of these creepy bastards were trying to claw, punch, scratch, and gnaw their way through a door. On the other side of the door was a little blonde girl, terrified. Ummmm. Me. Little girl. Blonde. Bangs. Terrified. Oh shit. Yes, that's what I remember. These deformed, awful kids trying to kill a little blonde girl. Yes, once upon a time I had blonde hair-- real blonde, not the fake I have now. Let me tell you. It scared the shit out of me. Let me reiterate, it fucking scared the shit out of me. So much, that I remember being absolutely terrified. My earliest childhood memory involves this movie. Fabulous.
Youtube: So i thought it would be funny to watch other scenes on youtube. Just to see what I was so afraid of. Honestly, I love scary movies and watch them pretty frequently. However, I was actually nervous to start watching this, my heartrate even increased a little. And let me tell you, it was scary!!! Not like Freddy Krueger scary, but creepy, disturbing scary. One particular scene was in a classroom. Two of those snow-suit wearing little mother fuckers picked up a couple of mallets and started bludgeoning the teacher!!! No lie, they were wailing on that bitch until she was a lifeless heap on the floor. Her head was smashed and she was laying upon a pool of congealing blood. Are you kidding me??!!!
CPS: I bet CPS didn't exist then, but if they did, someone should have picked up the phone and called them. Who in the fuck let me watch this movie? I was talking about it one day and my dad goes... "yeah, I remember that movie-- all those deformed kids with parkas"... he informed me "they killed people their mom didn't like". So, it was my dad?!! He let poor little 4 year old me watch this movie?? Jesus Christ. I can't imagine my parents would willingly let me watch this movie... I like to think that they thought I was playing and wasn't paying attention. Who knows... All I know is that shit has been embedded in my brain for 29 years.
