Storyline

Victor Robinson moves into a new country home with his family. Their son Jesse, finds an old Edison invention in the basement. When they turn on the machine, they start hearing children's voices laughing and playing at night. Their mute autistic daughter, Meaghan, becomes more animated; singing and painting figures inside of a circle on the walls. Other strange events start to take place around the house, such as two strange figures burned into the grass and even an attempted break in. After doing some research, Victor discovers that two children were murdered years ago in the town, and their bodies were never found. After visiting the man who confessed to the crime, he is convinced the spirits of those children are trying to warn him that their real killer is still loose.

It's good, but it's a rip-off of Orson Scott Card's "Lost Boys"
14 April 2000 | by SSYWAK-2See all my reviews

I enjoyed the film, for its own sake. However, I could not help but notice a substantial number of similarities between it and the Orson Scott Card book titled "Lost Boys."

Starting with the introductory scene of the killer (film: we see the killer; book: we are privy to his thoughts), and progressing through a drive through the countryside to a new house. The father works in a technical field where he can be home most of the time (film: bicycle tech manual writing; book: software tech manual writing). His child can contact the dead through an electronic device (film: some strange "Edison" invention, book: the TV). One of the children has a debilitating medical condition (film: autism; book: MS). Both involve a suspicious groundskeeper and interactions with police. In both, the family is nearby a specialized medical institution which is geared towards helping their ill child.

I could go on, but you should read the book for yourself, before I give too much away! If you liked this movie, then you'll love the OSC book.

Please feel free to e-mail me if you have any comments.
