Don’t Grow Up :- Watch Don’t Grow Up on Youtube on Fire, Nursing aspirations to the seamless mix of likable teen drama and Carpenter-esque horror achieved by the superior chiller “It Follows,” French helmer Thierry Poiraud’s “Don’t Grow Up” is a well-meaning coming-of-ager that perpetually threatens more full-throttle entertainment than it finally manages. Flashes of acute genre instinct leaven this sporadically atmospheric hybrid, but its characters are too often bogged down in unpersuasive angst. In his first feature without a co-director, Poiraud demonstrates a genuine talent for realizing action and horror elements; if only his tale of kids versus grown-ups were prepared to fully exploit its promising adulthood-as-evil subtext. A modest VOD audience seems its likeliest commercial prospect. Pic opens at dawn as May (Natifa Mai) awakes on her 18th birthday. Her boyfriend, Liam (McKell David), hassles her for sex; she’s less keen. So far, so familiar, but unlike the majority of contemporary onscreen adolescents, these lovebirds live in a foster home the imposing St. Madeleine Youth Advice Care Centre in Northlands along with a handful of other kids of a similar age. Why such a visibly sprawling establishment should be home to only half a dozen teenagers is left to the imagination. May’s friend Pearl (Madeleine Kelly) regards the older pair with a mixture of envy and diffidence, while harboring feelings for the home’s requisite sensitive brooder, Bastien (Fergus Riordan). On this day, the teens swiftly discover, they’re alone in the home, with staff unexpectedly absent. The gang capitalize on this opportunity for unsupervised good times, not suspecting anything more sinister could be afoot.
