Horror Challenge #10: 11/11/11 (2011)
So the premise is that this husband and wife move their son (who doesn't speak) to a small town where everyone seems strangely interested in him and his upcoming birthday (he'll turn 11 on November 11th, 11/11...oooh, creepy!) The old lady next door seems to want the kid dead, but the other neighbors seem to be happy about his arrival, and soon his mother learns she is pregnant and is bedridden with complications, so the kid needs a nanny (enter the evil nanny who is another bad influence on the poor kid). The movie is silly and a lot of the acting is pretty bad, but it's not much worse than other movies I've seen, and at least it entertained me, whereas the OTHER "11-11-11" just bored me into a coma and pissed me off. Like with that movie, I knew what was going to happen in this movie, but there was enough creepy kid action to keep me interested. Yeah, this movie rips off "The Omen" shamelessly, and of course that movie is a million times better than this one, but like I said, I still enjoyed this movie more than the OTHER "11-11-11" and for what it was, a stupid low-budget creepy kid movie, it wasn't as bad as people say it was.
