I was wondering if anybody's seen this and if it's worth looking at?
The Spanish title is "¿Quién puede matar a un niño?" and it's also known as "Death is Child's Play", or "Island of Death"

I'm useless - I had the Luminous bootleg for eons without watching it and have s ince replaced that with the recent DarkSky release. I really should check this out. I'll endeavour to give it a go in the next couple of weeks. It's supposed to be really good.

If Spanish horror floats your boat, make sure you check out A BELL FROM HELL. This deeply unsettling character study with supernatual elements is a definite must have, IMO.

It's a great film, well worth checking out and the Dark Sky DVD is by all accounts an excellent release. I really need to pick a copy of it up asap, only ever seen it via the old Luminous version, which was admittedly pretty decent.

Who Can Kill a Child? is IMO one of the best Spanish horror films ever made,a very tense and frightening movie.I bought the new Darksky disc last week and should have it anyday now,the old Alfa Digital(LFVW) dvd isn't bad either but it'll be interesting to compare it to this new print.
Also check out Serrador's fantastic La Residencia(The House that Screamed) which he made a few years earlier,it's a period piece about the headmistress of a boarding school for wayward girls in the countryside and the strange way in which the girls keep going missing.The Alfa Digital disc is very nice and in English,highly recommended.
I agree with Comp about A Bell From Hell,another superb classic.

It's a fantastic film! I'll echo what others have said and say that the Alfa disc is tip-top. When I get a bit of extra cash I'll splurge on the Dark Sky disc but for the time being the Alfa one will suffice for me.

Yep it is indeed a great film and I snapped up the Dark Sky straight away. Most people are positive about the film, although I think John White (Maniacs/ DVD Times) didn't like the film at all which took me a little by surprise.

Excellent movie. Very Hitchcockian in places. Also reminds me of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD in some ways. It's a slow build but damn well worth it as the suspense mounts to an explosive ending.

I haven't picked up the Dark Sky disc yet but I was reading about the interviews on the disc and they sound very informative with a lot of background info. Am I the only one who sees this as horror instead of exploitation?

Nope I've always seen it as a horror film rather than an exploitation one.
