Got it on DVD... Very low budget horror/splatter flick released by the infamous [for EXTREAMELY CRAPPY movies] Troma studios.

The titlular 'children' are all non-actors of almost 'home-movie' proportions; except they know that they are supposed to be acting which makes them even more self-concious in front of the camera... I don't even think the children have any speaking roles [to speak of... ;) ].

Similar movies are:

Devil Times Five (1974) [ http://imdb.com/title/tt0071413/ ] with Gail Smale (@15yo) [ http://imdb.com/name/nm0806406/ ], Dawn Lyn (@10yo) [ http://imdb.com/name/nm0528184/ ] and Tia Thompson (@ 6-8yo) [ http://imdb.com/name/nm0860779/ ]. The acting is bad, but TONS better than 'Beware...' :think

¿Quién puede matar a un niño? {Who Would Kill a Child} (1976) [ http://imdb.com/title/tt0075462/ ] It's rumored that THIS movie inspired Stephen King to write the short story 'Children of the Corn' that spawned the same-titled movie and it's sequels...

The Children (1980) [ http://imdb.com/title/tt0080527/ ] Again the children here are pretty much non-entities [again, little if any speaking roles] and lousy actors. :(

Bloody Birthday (1981) [ http://imdb.com/title/tt0082084/ ] with Elizabeth Hoy [ http://imdb.com/name/nm0398318/ ] ;) (Cute li'l evil BITCH!!)

Any of the 'Children of the Corn' sequels... :lol

There's other 'Killer Children' movies out there, but these are the first that come to mind that are in the 'awful' vein of THIS particular movie...

HEY!! But you never know what appeals to people... This might turn out to be someone's FAVE movie... So the post IS appreciated, ghost!! :thumbsup
