Storyline

When the eight-year-old son, David, of a wealthy New England socialite is abducted, his kidnapper Max Harper and his seedy associates assume it will be a routine kidnapping in exchange for a large ransom. Unknown to the kidnappers, the shy and reserved David actually has a hidden agenda of his own, and a mysterious way of tapping into the minds of others. Soon, Max will wish that he had never kidnapped David, much less even heard of him. Written by Icedberry

Nothing bad, nothing great, nothing memorable.
13 November 2012 | by nitzanhavocSee all my reviews

To be honest, I'm too sure what to make of this film.

Acting, footage, story... all were OK, can't point my finger on anything specifically wrong, but neither on anything great. Nothing innovating or breathtaking, yet nothing bluntly disappointing.

The kid is creepy, true. However, he's not creepy in any way we haven't seen before in the classic "creepy children" films like Children of the Corn and such. Also, it felt to me like there were some continuity holes in the story. Nothing visual (therefore nothing too blunt), but rather story-wise. All through the film the kid is presented as this diabolic creature with supernatural powers. Then how come the movie ended the way it did?

Again, I can't say there was anything particularly wrong with this film, but there was nothing about it that would make it memorable. I'd say its worth watching if you come across it, but not worth going to trouble for.
