Good monster suit, lame movie
29 December 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The monster costume interested me in the film, but said movie's content was dull. The 13th Child is another one of those movies about characters investigate a mystery the audience already knows the outcome of.

It takes place in the small community near Pine Barrens which doesn't feel like a community at all. At one point we see inside a hospital, but essentially the movie could be taking place in the middle of nowhere. Occasionally, citizens who have little relevance to the plot appear and only rarely will these scenes have any payoff.

Essentially, we're following three cops who investigate a murder and some creepy man living in a huge mansion. This keeps getting interrupted by "present day" scenes of an older cop detained in a mental facility. Again,since we already know the result of the mystery, this holds no suspense.
