It's got a creepy soundtrack, fleshy blue monsters, a rabbit infestation, and Australian socialists... but this is not your typical horror movie. Originally intended as a complex sociopolitical drama about what the adult world does to the mind of a child, American markets rebranded this film as a horror. So if you watch Celia (or in America: Celia - Child of Terror) be forewarned that you're heading into a more psychological path than an Omen or Exorcist-style fright fest.
