Pretty nice flick right here, I rather enjoyed it. It did start out a bit slow, but picked up rather swiftly... and it was quite the twist seeing Culkin in a role like this. I'd only seen him in Home Alone before this, so yep, definite change. The storyline was nicely written, with enough evil deeds by him to keep it entertaining, yet semi-believable. Elijah did a decent job in his role, too bad he had to end up being in the shitfest known as the LOTR Trilogy ten years later. Nice ending as well, not often that you'll see a kid die in a flick.

I loved this film when I was little, Macaulay Culkin's sequey into thrillers. He did a nice job, as did Elijah Wood and Wendy Crewson and David Morse. The performances was there and it was nice seeing Culkin go out of his way to be the bad ass. And, how about that ending? You've gotta love that ending. 7/10.

Love the idea of a non-satanic serial killer child. Culkin's just so evil. 10/10
