What Is The Plot of There’s Something Wrong with the Children?
Let’s take a look at the official plot synopsis of There’s Something Wrong with the Children before we discuss it in more detail:
When Margaret and Ben take a weekend trip with long-time friends Ellie and Thomas and their two young children Ben begins to suspect something supernatural is occurring when the kids behave strangely after disappearing into the woods overnight.
Although we knew that There’s Something Wrong with the Children was going to be a horror movie, we weren’t entirely sure if the director wanted to go the supernatural route, however, the synopsis has clarified that is exactly the way they’re going, which makes this movie all the more exciting. Taking a trip with your friends shouldn’t turn into a nightmare, but it does for our characters when their kids begin behaving strangely. Initially, both the kids get lost in the woods, but miraculously turn up at their doorstep, with no indication of harm of any kind. However, these kids are far from okay.
Once they return to their parents, thus ensues a series of unfortunate events. From little jump scares to absolutely sinister moments, there’s a wide range of horror in There’s Something Wrong with the Children, and it’s all because of the children. It will be interesting to find out what exactly happened in the woods that night. Are the children possessed by an unknown entity? And if so, how are the parents going to bring them back? This trip has truly turned into the worst possible nightmare and the parents are dying to wake up from it.
The Cast of There’s Something Wrong with the Children
It is almost never easy to act in horror movies, especially when they are as sinister as There’s Something Wrong with the Children. So, kudos to the entire cast for being a part of this project, and especially the children who will be the stars of There’s Something Wrong with the Children, because well, something is wrong with them. Briella Guiza and David Mattle will be playing the roles of Lucy and Spencer. Both these young cast members have only just started their filming careers, although they have some experience in movies before their roles in There’s Something Wrong with the Children. Nevertheless, we hope these roles open several doors for them, as it shows versatility and a whole lot of courage.
Moving on to the parents, we have Zach Gilford, Amanda Crew, Alisha Wainwright, and Carlos Santos. You might recognize Gilford from Mike Flanagan’s Midnight Mass, which is streaming on Netflix, so this definitely won’t be his first or last role in the horror genre. If you have watched The Haunting in Connecticut, you will probably recognize Amanda Crew. So it’s safe to say most of the cast members have some experience with this genre, and that will showcase in their performances in There’s Something Wrong with the Children. It will be interesting to see how all these cast members come together to play the role of terrified parents with children who are possibly ready to murder them.
When and Where Can You Watch There’s Something Wrong with the Children?
Now, this might be good news for some, and bad news for others, but There’s Something Wrong with the Children will be available to stream digitally only. Paramount Pictures will release There’s Something Wrong with the Children on the 17th of January, 2023, and three months later, it will also be available on MGM+ on the 17th of March.

Is There a Trailer for There’s Something Wrong with the Children?
Paramount Movies released the official trailer for There’s Something Wrong with the Children about two weeks ago, and it is exactly as frightening as one would expect it to be. The trailer only gives us a glimpse into the horrors that we are about to witness in There’s Something Wrong with the Children, and undoubtedly, this movie is going to be a lot different from horror movies involving children, or at least that’s what we have gathered from the trailer so far. The children are unhinged, and the parents are terrified beyond belief, will things ever go back to normal? Or will someone have to pay the price? Also, we’re sure that the trailer has sent shivers down your spine already, however, if it hasn’t, the movie, There’s Something Wrong with the Children, definitely will. Everyone has left comments under the trailer about what they can expect from the movie, and while the theories are interesting, we will have to wait until the release to find out more about it.
We are aware that the horror genre isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but There’s Something Wrong with the Children looks almost too good to miss. So, whether or not you’re a horror fan, we highly recommend watching There’s Something Wrong with the Children, and make sure that when you go on holiday, either leave your children at home with a babysitter or keep them by your side the whole time!
