FBI agent Wesley Doyle is startled by the èrspontaneous declaration of youngster Fenton Meiks about how his father's delusions to have a divine mission as avenging angel required him and his brother Adam to become his 'demon-slaying' murder accomplices. But when Doyle accepts to be shown concealed victim graves, the plot twists in the present just as gruesomely.yaWritten by
Bill Paxton insisted on flying the young Tennessee actor Blake King to the shoot in Los Angeles in order to have a boy with a native southern accent play the small role of Fenton's classmate Eric who invites Fenton to "wrap" Corey's house (at 40:55 in the director commentary). See more »
When Agent Hull comes in Fenton's house, he sees the cork-board with Fenton's victim list. When it is first shown, the list is pinned up straight, with about a couple of inches of cork-board visible under it. However, when the list is seen again, it is slightly tilted, and pinned directly above a picture (with cork-board no longer visible). See more »

This is a must see! A haunting and thought provoking tale - with some excellent acting thrown in the mix!
I had to see this gem twice to really appreciate all of it. When a widowed father of two interrupts his two sons' sleep with a shocking revelation, they are torn between believing him and not. As the horrifying events of this tale unfold, we learn a lot about the father, about his two sons, and about their destinies. With shocking twist after shocking twist, this film never allows for a lull in the plot. Bill Paxton plays the father, but the most notable performances are that of his older son, Fenton, played by Matthew O'Leary and his younger son, Adam, played by Jeremy Sumpter. This is one of the best thrillers that I have seen in a while, and you will want to watch this a few times to appreciate every intricate aspect of the plot. I give this film a 9/10.
