Good if you like cheering for the killer!
3 September 2002 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

This is actually one of those films that's so bad it's kind of funny. The only character of any intelligence or possible sympathy is the central psycho - in this case a kid. The adults are so pathetically naive, and blunder into fatal situations so easily, that it's ludicrously funny to watch. My guess is that this film is a cheap attack at 80s liberal politics - the story is so blatantly one-sided.

SPOILER WARNING

The central killer has such an easy time of it that the plot is almost boring. No one seems to have the remotest chance of catching up to him. He has the uncanny ability to push everyone's buttons exactly the right way. He's so brilliant he can apparently outwit a professional child psychologist without any hassle. He even manages to disarm a gun placed on a table right under the nose of a school principal on the phone. Admittedly some of the coincidences are totally ridiculous, especially the bit with the skeleton that happens to be of a child his age exactly.

If you enjoy the type of story where a psycho killer is running effortless rings around everyone else in the cast, then you may get a wicked thrill from this movie. If you only like sensible stories where the nice ordinary people eventually win and no-one ever really gets hurt, I suggest you avoid this one like the plague.
