The Innocents is a 2021 Norwegian horror film about children that reveal their dark and mysterious powers when adults aren’t looking.
Written and directed by Eskil Vogt (Blind), the movie stars Rakel Fløttum, Alva Ramstad, Ismail Ashraf, Mina Asheim and Ellen Dorrit Petersen.
In a recent interview with the Norsk Filminstitutt, writer-director Eskil Vogt said: “I think kids are beyond good and evil or rather before good and evil. But I don’t think children are little angels, that people are born pure. I think children are born without any sense of empathy or morals, we have to teach them that.”
