In a quiet suburban Atlanta neighborhood a boy has gone missing. Not only are people not acknowledging it, they are being downright evasive. When a mailman begins digging for information, he is startled at what he finds.
In a seemingly quiet suburban neighborhood, a boy has gone missing. The only person willing to recognize the disappearance is Greg, the neighborhood mailman. After he questions the neighbor she only seems concerned with the disappearance of her dog. Could he be wrong about there being three boys. He has been mailman in this neighborhood for 10 years, and seems sure that he has delivered mail to all three boys. After second guessing himself, he realizes that the other boys might be in danger. What, if anything, did happen to their brother? Are they trying to protect their father? When Greg confronts the boy's father he doesn't get the answers he wants. What happens next is surely not something he could have expected. Written by
There is really good pacing and some fine performances in this film. The kids devious behavior was expressed through their solemn and expressionless faces. The shot of them standing by the front door was beautifully disturbing, and you know when the mailman gets lead to the basement, it isn't going to go his way!
Greg Thompson also gives a standout performance as the mailman in Postal.
This isn't a film that will scare you out of your seat, but it leaves you with an uneasy feeling. It is more of a psychological thriller than a horror film.
