In this episode, we get into the spirit of the season with Tom Shankland’s The Children from 2008. That means a bit of snowbound horror, insufferable family drama, and plenty of killer kids to go around. Jason is forced to reckon with the realization that his Christmas-related pick actually has more to do with New Year’s. Michael comes to terms with hating every character in a story. Meanwhile, Dustin struggles to find nice things to say about the film. We also spend a bit of time running down some of our favorites in the killer kids subgenre. And so much more!
