Storyline

Twelve year-old Gabriel 'Gabe' Reilich thinks he's cursed after collapsing when his name comes out of a Ouija board game played with mates indicating him as marked for death. Dr. Robert Chase cleverly finds out about the boy's secret society's abandoned meeting place and suspicious substances there. Gabe's scary mix of suddenly appearing symptoms suggest anthrax and a rare, infectious tropical disease. Chase refuses to have any personal contact with his father, rheumatologist Rowan Chase, a world authority on auto-immune diseases, who suddenly turns up and joins the diagnostic joust. Yet House takes a stubborn interest in Rowan's reason to visit his estranged son now, as well as in Gabe's admired, separated father Jeffrey Reilich's past... Written by KGF Vissers

We definitely need to know if 12-year-olds are getting any action.
7 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A 12-year-old thinks he is cursed because of an ouija board. He is presenting with a host of extremely rare diseases including anthrax.

In the middle of this case walks Chase's dad, played by Patrick Bauchau ("The Pretender"). He walked out on Chase when he was 15 and Chase holds him responsible for his mom's death. Thing is, he is dying, but doesn't want Chase to know. he just wants to see him. The conflict that Chase is having with his father mirrors the conflicting emotions of the boy when he finds out what his real problem is and that his father lied to him.

Excellent acting by all involved, but Chase (Jesse Spencer) steals the show.
