Thoughts on Ankle Biters

ThoughtsAnkle Biters brings to life the idea that young children might not like a potential new parental role in their lives, when they will take this matter into their own hands. This story will start with the attempted bonding, while we see how the four girls are planning to push Chase away, starting with little ideas, before things start getting a lot worse and out of their control. This will have a calm approach with how the girls are planning, which comes from the natural chemistry the four sisters have from real life. When it comes to what is happening, it will be disturbing at certain parts, along with a moment that is shocking too. This could have dived into the comedy behind everything more, which would have added clever moments in the actions going on.

Final Thoughts Ankle Biters is a disturbing idea, that doesn’t give us enough of the comedy, to embrace the concept.
