Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: This peculiar thriller doesn't deliver enough jolts to leave the audience screaming.
Rotten: Where were the responsible adults when this thing was made?
Rotten: You sit there laughing at Culkin's best comedy ever. If only this movie wasn't supposed to be a horror picture.
Rotten: The movie is a creepy, unpleasant experience, made all the worse because it stars children too young to understand the horrible things we see them doing.
I have been trying to find this movie on the shelf for years now and I was very pleased to see that iTunes had it! This is a story about two young boys (Culkin and Wood). Elijah's mom passed on and he is staying with his cousin of the same age in Maine (Culkin). Mac's character is a little off the deep end to say the least and very sadistic. Lots of good scenes and heart stopping action. I really wished that Culkin had stuck with acting...I'm a big fan of all of his movies..Uncle Buck, Home Alone, and especially this one. He needs to get back in the saddle soon and come out with some more awesome flicks!
