this is one of those movies that takes you by surprise
11 January 2001 | by (australia) – See all my reviews

this was a pretty good movie..i was surfing channels and came across this..relative fear is a real creepy affair..especially the autistic adam that kid creeped the s**t out of me... the plot was good and so were the twists....but creepy adam stole the show ... so if you like thrillers with good twists then relative fear is for you... i give it 8/10 and will never look at 4 year old autistic kids the same again
