Cooties is a movie as silly as its premise suggests, but with a lot of gruesome murders involving children.

I feel obliged to point out, that cooties are not a fictional disease. It's actually an archaic term for pubic lice.

Honestly, if you think about it, it probably makes the premise much more disturbing.

I would say it makes it dumber for anyone who knows basic Medical history.

OT: I feel like this is a movie that suffers from trying too hard to deconstruct and play with tropes that it forgets to make a good story.

Now we need to ask the most important question, is this worse than another killer children movie starting Elijah Wood: The Good Son

Ah... Now, the tagline rhymes... Kinda...

OT: Sounds like a popcorn chicken movie I would watch if I had some globdamn popcorn chicken... (Seriously, KFC... How the fuck can you get my popcorn chicken order wrong again?)

I hope not? If so, then maybe it can hit the "so bad it's good" mark of movie achievement, at least... :p

You know, this sounds like a perfect Halloween B movie.
I always like to match something stupid with something genuinely terrifying for the night.

Too bad. I really wanted to enjoy this, so I could see some horror movie kids finally get what's coming to them, but unfortunately, all of the movie's problems just sound too off-putting.

I suppose this is the kind of thing that happens when you pitch a movie with a funny premise, people say "Oh wow that sounds hilarious!" because it was hilarious... for the all of five seconds it took to tell people the premise... and then it turns out that you can't actually wring 90 minutes of comedy out of a movie whose punchline came at the very beginning.

This doesn't sound like it's for me, since I don't get the mentality of laughing at kids dying, like "Ded kid, hur hur." That's what messed up Wet Hot American Summer for me, after my brother sang its praises after he watched the Netflix series.

captcha: be careful
What is not something the filmmakers did when handling the jokes in this turkey?
