      Joel Fisher Battle Royale With Cheese Ankle Biters would have been better if it were played more for laughs and if the film didn't go so dark. Nov 17, 2021 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation There's a clever plot here with plenty of can't-miss possibilities. Brabandere misses too many of those, and kind of hangs his "Ankle Biters" out to dry. Rated: 1.5/4 Nov 13, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

      Edward B There was real dark comedy potential in this story which is why it caught my eye; four girls 10 and under kill for their mother's attention. Unfortunately dark comedy never materializes, it dabbles lightly into slasher horror but provides little else. The script is weak and full of holes, the adult actors overcompensate for bad story and script. The child actors are convincing however, the two older girls solidly show breaks into psychpathy. The two younger girls are more innocent and show guilt and remorse, but this undermines earlier positioning that all four girls are unified in a sort of collective insanity. Bottom line, the story doesn't really work and falls apart. It was however interesting to see Colin Mochrie (of Whose Line is it Anyway?) take a serious role as a 'detective.' Unfortunately for Mochrie, very poor script combined with bad special effects and plot twists that add nothing and make no sense make his appearance unremarkable. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/24/24 Full Review Audience Member Really fun good work!  Funny but oh so dark.  Reminded me in a weird way of that humor in Evil Dead.  Unexpected and fun — Those Girls! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Originally known as Cherrypicker, which was probably too Canadian of a title, Ankle Biters totally took me by surprise and took me on a wild ride with four of the worst behaved kids since Who Can Kill a Child? or Devil Times Five. Sean, a hockey goon, has fallen in love with Laura, a widowed mother of four young daughters. When their rough arrdvarking alerts the kids that their mother is being hurt — spoiler she isn't and it's just roleplay — they plan to protect her no matter what it takes. And what it takes is murder after murder. Comedy fans will recognize Colin Mochrie as Detective Morton, but otherwise this young cast was all new to me and they excel in all of their roles. There are some shocking moments here from start to finish and at no time was I bored or taken out of the story. In fact, I had a blast and I'd recommend that if you have an open mind, aren't easily offended and are ready to be taken aback, get this movie and indulge yourself. The only person I feel bad for is Sean, because the guy means well. His meaning well just makes things worse. And worse. And then even worse. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
