Storyline

After a troubled year in school, Jodi is informed by her teacher, Ms. Hemp, that she will recommend to Jodi's father that the girl be sent to a special boarding school next year. Horrified at the thought of being separated from her beloved father, Jodi does what any young child in the same situation would do: she sneaks into the school the next day when nobody is there but Ms. Hemp is there and brutally murders her by crushing her with a bookcase so Ms. Hemp can't meet with her father. Well, maybe Jodi isn't like the other children. As other people start to come between the girl and her father, they also meet similar fates. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Only Theoretically Good
5 June 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This film has a lot of potential, however fails to impress due to the poorly written script.

Scenes are very drawn out, and so there is an extremely minute degree of suspense in the whole movie. It is obvious what Jodi is going to do to each victim by the middle of the film.

The mystery of the child's past is not drawn upon to develop a stronger background to the character of Jodi. Unfortunately, this doesn't give the child actor much to work with, and thus, the protagonists' performance is extremely wooden.

The supporting actors have so little to work with with regards to material, that the whole thing falls apart because of the lack of backbone in direction.

To the actors' credits, for an obscenely banal script, their performances were good.
