tragic story that to me is based on true life
3 January 2001 | by (CYPRUS) – See all my reviews

Many tragic parents have lost a young member of the family in this cruel world which sick people are to blame. How can you take a child's life!... There are many films with the same story line, but I don't think the message to people quite gets across. It still happens even now this moment someone out there is being hurt. I think that these films could also corrupt people, maybe even to 'copy cat', to give them sick ideas. These films are not for boring housewives with nothing to do, if you have any compassion towards parents whom have lost a child you would of at least shed a tear when they found their child murdered months later.
