Logline: Already haunted, Jenny follows her husband to rural c.1962 Georgia where the children waiting in the ramshackle warden’s mansion ask her to do terrible things.
Something terrible happened in the old warden’s house that Jenny and Franklin move into. The dead children tell Jenny so. Jenny, haunted and scarred, is compelled to do terrible things of her own to save them. “Dead Children” is a suspenseful psychological ghost story. Though the emphasis is on the atmosphere, it doesn’t flinch. This is a scary story; not blood and guts, but not for the faint-hearted either.
