A frustrated man decides to take justice into his own hands after a plea bargain sets one of his family's killers free. He targets not only the killer but also the district attorney and others involved in the deal.
After kidnapping and brutally assaulting two young women, a gang unknowingly finds refuge at a vacation home belonging to the parents of one of the victims: a mother and father who devise an increasingly gruesome series of revenge tactics.
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
In the horror genre,the sub-genus about evil children is not as popular as the slasher or the films about haunted houses,but,usually,it falls on clichés.Also,we have to add that,usually,we see a young actor who does not produce fear so,almost all the times,the result is a crap.But Whisper does not have that things because it is fun and it generates suspense thanks to its ingenious premise.Director Stewart Hendler shows us the story in a credible way and the movie produces more suspense than horror.I also appreciated the film does not have the MTV camera tricks.Josh Holloway has enough charisma in his leading role.The young actor Blake Woodruff makes a pretty fine performance.The complaining I have against this movie is that the film lacks of blood which would have made more credible the various deaths the movie shows.Whisper is not a great horror movie but it could keep me very entertained and tense.A nice surprise.
