A curiously mild psychological horror movie that undermines the audience by never coming clean; is the child like Damien in the Omen? You bet. Is he like that obnoxious kid from Problem Child? Sort of. Is he seeing dead people like Osment in The Sixth Sense? Who knows, but it would've been nice to know. Final Grade: C+

I don't know about this one. Like a lot of people, I must admit that I expected a film somewhere along the lines of "The Omen." Instead, the film relied on psychology's realism. Even though the story can happen in real life, I thought it would be more fun. The "evil" child proved to be a formidable enemy but I think he could've done more to make everyone's lives miserable. The first hour is really slow and the creepy piano got a bit too repetitive. I usually like implications between pauses and unsaid words but oddly enough, this time around, I didn't appreciate it. Instead, I was mad that it left me hanging, wanting something more. When the end credits started rolling, I couldn't help but think, "That's it? Wow."

Think obvious and you will be right.

This movie could have been so much better, but it chose to be another Omen rip-off. The boy, though creepy at times, failed to really make me care at all about him or his family. The constant piano key striking throughout the film threw off the mood so instead of getting into the film I checked my watch wondering when it was going to end.

The movie wasn't a complete failure, I laughed out loud (inappropriately) when the boy was finally hit and put in his place, little did I know that it was pretty much the end of the movie and no climax was ever reached. Any movie that ends with a creepy song and a wide open plot has to either, a) be the Matrix or b) have a good enough story to start so I don't leave the theater apologizing to my friends that I recommended this in the first place. Damn...
