Victor Robinson moves into a new country home with his family. Their son, Jesse, discovers an old Edison invention. When they turn on the machine, they start to here kids playing and laughing. Their autistic daughter, Meaghan, starts to be painting and singing like never before, weird events take place in the house, and a strange figure is burned into the grass. They believe Meaghan is receiving messages from the unsolved murder years before.

User Reviews

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.
