Extremely weird horror film about a group of five sociopathic children who escape from a mental institution after their bus crashes during a snowstorm.

Ending up in a resort, six adults take the adorable tykes in, little realizing they're dealing with some seriously disturbed shit up in here! Sweet and innocent they ain't.

No matter. The grown ups are about to find out. Using every weapon at hand (knives, guns, even piranha fish in a bathtub!) the cutesy-patootsy knee-highs begin to kill everyone in sight.

Has to be seen to be believed.

Also known as Peopletoys as well as Tantrums (the latter is our favorite), this unsung wonder was rereleased several years later to cash in on the success of teen idol Garrett.

A real find and disturbing as hell.
