Storyline

Gordon has a loving wife and two sons, Bryan and Keith, but he favors his spoiled younger son Keith over Bryan, who is defiant and not good at sports. As Gordon begins to yell and hit Bryan, Bryan's behavior slips towards the psychotic side and he takes it out on beings who can't defend themselves until he goes way too far one day during a summer camping trip.

Fell short on the acting in many scenes, but good story
7 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

This movie has a great storyline for those who love to explore the dark side of psychology and the resulting family dynamics. As sad as the movie could be, the story was compelling enough to be enjoyable. If you're savvy enough to pick up on the parents' faults, you'll find yourself rooting for the kids the whole time through the movie.

Now for the flaws...Other than the character who played Bryan, there were many scenes where the acting fell short. The child character Keith had lines that often times seemed forced. I also found the parents reactions to big events to be ineffective. For instance, there is one very traumatic event in the movie and the parents have almost no emotion towards what happened leaving the audience member feeling the same way: unemotional. Acting is definitely not a detail to overlook when it comes to a drama such as this.

Overall, I gave this movie a seven because the storyline was one that interested me enough to keep watching and stay pretty content, but that will be very dependent on the viewer.
