Entertaining Low budget movie!
28 March 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Even though this film had such a small budget $1.5m (it really shows at times) it was a very suspenseful and very well acted by B-MOVIE king Treat Williams and fading star Linda Hamilton a good if underused performance (she just seems to pop in and out of the movie) The best performance in the movie has to go to gorgeous Johnathan Jackson who really deserves to be a bigger star on this role alone. The story surrounds the strained relationship between father and son (Williams & Jackson). Jackson is a very weird kid and his father gets very paranoid about his behavior. Is Jackson a serial killing teenager? what happened to his mother? did Treat kill her?

you'll have to watch to find out

persevere with this Indie- you'll be rewarded

My vote 8/10 (really worth the £2.99 i paid for it)
