Great Movie For Kids
21 April 2001 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

This video is a great movie for kids probably ages 7 and up. The plot makes it scary for many children younger than that. Billy (Michael Galeota, now most famous for Disney Channel's "The Jersey") witnesses a neighbor commiting murder. Unable to make his mother believe him, Billy, his little brother, Kade (played by Michael Galeota's real life brother, Jimmy) and their friends set out to prove what really happened.
