When the eight-year-old son, David, of a wealthy New England socialite is abducted, his kidnapper Max Harper and his seedy associates assume it will be a routine kidnapping in exchange for a large ransom. Unknown to the kidnappers, the shy and reserved David actually has a hidden agenda of his own, and a mysterious way of tapping into the minds of others. Soon, Max will wish that he had never kidnapped David, much less even heard of him. Written by
There is a good and entertaining horror drama thriller about a young child called David who is kidnapped - but everything is not as it seems about him, much as we might follow but in different circumstances in Joshua and other child demon movies such as SHIVER.
No spill of blood or sex scenes and I don't think this movie is intended to be a really scary horror movie, thank goodness, it is much better as a drama thriller with loads of suspense moments.
Takes a while to work out who the girl is killed in the opening scene but once we engage with the child character after 20 minutes or so, we begin to understand. Love the Santa concept which they delivered well at the end.
the 'secret Jones' is of course also integral and paramount to the storyline. So many good things about this movie that they override anything bad.
Its not a great movie but if you like thrillers with a touch of horror and drama, you will enjoy this.
