At the screening of Vinyan last week at the Toronto International Film Festival, director Fabrice Du Welz – who made his TIFF debut with CALVAIRE a few years back – told the audience that the thriller was inspired by Narciso Ibáñez Serrador’s 1978 Spanish horror film entitled WHO CAN KILL A CHILD? He explained that he originally attempted to gain the remake rights to the film, which is now owned by another studio under the name CHILD’S PLAY (bad name, I know). So, in turn, a lot of the finale of VINYAN comes from his inspiration for the remake he would have made. In the original film, a couple of English tourists arrive on an island where all the children have gone crazy and are murdering the adults.
