It's good, but it's a rip-off of Orson Scott Card's "Lost Boys"

I enjoyed the film, for its own sake. However, I could not help but notice a substantial number of similarities between it and the Orson Scott Card book titled "Lost Boys."

Starting with the introductory scene of the killer (film: we see the killer; book: we are privy to his thoughts), and progressing through a drive through the countryside to a new house. The father works in a technical field where he can be home most of the time (film: bicycle tech manual writing; book: software tech manual writing). His child can contact the dead through an electronic device (film: some strange "Edison" invention, book: the TV). One of the children has a debilitating medical condition (film: autism; book: MS). Both involve a suspicious groundskeeper and interactions with police. In both, the family is nearby a specialized medical institution which is geared towards helping their ill child.

I could go on, but you should read the book for yourself, before I give too much away! If you liked this movie, then you'll love the OSC book.

Please feel free to e-mail me if you have any comments.
