The Strange Ones is a creepy movie that follows the children of Culver City as they play in empty lots and lonely junkyards, surrounded by pedophiles hiding in the shadows. When a little girl, Karen, accepts candy from a stranger and then gets into his car, the police must rescue her and explain about the dangers of “the strange ones.” A policewoman informs Karen that some people are “sick in the mind,” and want to hurt little children like her. She gives advice about how to avoid these people, and how to protect yourself if you are in a bad situation. This film confronts an extremely serious subject, but audiences of today will find the stereotyped characters, hapless victims, and melodramatic scary music over-the-top and at times even humorous.
