Plot Outline:

A mother is forced to deal with the most terrifying thing a mother can deal with in this daring film based off of a popular play. Set in the 1950's, in a society where little girls are brought up to be cute and polite young ladies, a little, "harmless" girl named Rhoda raises suspicion when a boy in her class mysteriously drowns after beating her in a penmanship contest. The medal he won went missing and Rhoda is the center of attention. No one suspects that she is to blame for the boy's death, but her the janitor at the building she lives in. Her mother also has to come to terms with the fact that her daughter might be a "Bad Seed" who lacks a soul and kills to get what she wants. Is Rhoda innocent or is she a bad seed? -- Keegon

This movie was excellent..., totally demented, but excellent! I'm not sure what to make of the very last scene, though, as I am not fond of spanking.
