Ankle Biters (2021). Ankle Biters: Directed by Bennet De Brabandere. With Colin Mochrie, Heidi von Palleske, Matia Jackett, Marianthi Evans. Four adorable little girls plot to murder a hockey player after they mistake an act of lovemaking as an attack on their mom.
“From the frozen north comes a comedy/horror so u0026quot;horribleu0026quot; that it sat on the shelf for two years and was given a name change. Hi-concept films (young children misinterpret love-making as a threat to their mother — and seek retaliation) barely work for the SNL crowd, so this one was pushing the envelope even before filming started. Colin Mochrie, once considered one of Canadau0026#39;s best improv artists, seems lost here, as does most of the picture-perfect, airbrushed, cast. If you keep in mind that many Canadian projects enjoy government subsidies, the true source of the horror will become that much clearer.”
