Pretty Sweet Thriller
28 June 2003 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

This thriller about Preston Tylk, (Wilson) and a detective in search of the real truth of the man's wife's murder, and of the stalker (Reedus), who in turn wants to find out the real truth of his brother's death, and to confront the man, Preston, and get payback. Bad Seed may not be such a great title for this movie, but this thriller sure has great expectations, as well as Wilson and Reedus as the "cat and mouse". 8 out of 10.
