brilliant but frightening movie
3 November 2005 | by (Cologne-City, Germany) – See all my reviews

I have never seen a movie like this before, watching this made me frightened. But the movie "Mind Games" was great and stays still in my memory after long time. There were some parts of action in it, I never will forget. my compliment to the small boy for acting in this movie, because I think, this movie was more cruelly than a horror-movie. I want to see this movie again, but in Germany it is not possible. The highest voting 10/10 from me for this old movie !!! I'm wondering, if the boy had ever the possibility to watch his own movie, he worked and acted for. This movie was never shown in the German TV. I'm wondering, what the boy think today about acting in "Mind Games" ??? This movie is special...
