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

Goofs

After chasing off the wolf by firing his gun, Vince (Joel Edgerton) says, "God bless the fifth amendment." The United States Constitution's fifth amendment protects against self-incrimination and requires due process be afforded. He probably meant the second amendment, which protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms. See more »

This film was something else for a change. I must agree with the previous commentator that this film contained no bad or good characters. The play was very intense and was refreshingly something new. I could not tell every moment what would happen and to be honest this film lied very near to a book i just read called the Inner phantom. With in every an each person there is something bad, or something that he or she hides. Every and each person has a dark side she or he fears. He has it in him, and sometimes it can get out. And by others it is stronger they kill. Others it sleeps and sometimes it awakes and they cheat on her / his boy / girlfriend or lie.. This film is very near this conception and i must say i was thrilled to the last moment. Watch this film if you want to see something good and else for a change...
