Although Mikey is just a little boy, he is capable of anything. Every family Mikey lives with has a series of unexplained "accidents" and hence he's moved from home to home. After his original family dies "accidentally," Mikey is taken by authorities and placed into the care of adoptive parents. Of course they eventually come to learn that there were no accidents.Written by

Following the James Bulger case and on the advice of three child psychiatrists this movie was rejected for a UK video certificate in 1996 by the BBFC. It has never been resubmitted to the BBFC and thus remains unrated in the UK. However, some UK video streaming platforms have or previously shown this movie. See more »
Mikey's hands are wet with blood when he picks up Mr. Jenkins' gun so surely when he replaces the gun, still with bloodied hands, it would be covered in blood but it is apparently clean and Mr. Jenkins notices nothing amiss. See more »

This movie was not exceptionally original, but it stays very interesting throughout. The violence was well constructed, the pacing was perfect, and the acting was above average for this type of film. Brian Bonsall did a wonderful job playing the psychotic killer. One of the things that I especially liked was that his victims were all average people that were easy to relate to. Although they were believable, this movie is still more entertaining than scary.
This movie isn't going to make you think, but for pure entertainment value it is quite good. I love these kinds of horror movies, my favorites probably being Silent Night Deadly Night and Sleepaway Camp. If you enjoy those two movies you will probably like this one as well.
