Scared me as a child., 25 April 2002
Author: KryptonIsMyEvilFriend from California

This is a wonderful heartfelt movie. All the children as well as Alan Thick gave super performances. Definitely something you could watch with the whole family. If you liked the Not Quite Human series I'd recommend this.
