Trivia

Much of this movie revolves around the real life attempt by humans to explain evil. It is no accident that the childrens' parents represent the extreme sides of the debate: organized religion (pastor) and science (psychiatrist). In both cases, each parent is unable to explain their childrens' evil behaviour, either through psychology or spirituality. The somewhat nihilistic tone of the film is capped off by the fact that it provides no real answers, instead showing that both sides of the debate are unable to explain what evil really consists of, and what motivates the children to act the way they do.

I was surprised
25 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sometimes I think i'll never see anything fresh and new because it's all been done before, and then I watched this. I was flipping through some on demand channels and watched the preview, had to order it. After the movie was done, I found myself thinking about it for days and wanting to see it again so I could look for clues that I might have missed, that's the sign of a good movie in my opinion. I find it hard to believe so few people have seen this little gem, as I had a hard time even finding reviews for it. Oh.. and that guy from Hero's, Adrian Pasdar, fantastic in this! I never cared for the guy when watching Hero's but in this movie he showed he really has some acting skills, I lost myself in his acting he was THAT good.
