Review by Ultimatekai (posted on 23-Mar-2005)

Henry. Portrayed as a good son. But under all of that, there's the truth.

Mark was sad at the loss of his mother. He told himself that he never wanted to see a death like that again. But when he went to go stay at his cousin Henry's house, he had no idea that death would be all around him. Toward everyone else, Henry is a normal little boy. But Mark has found out that beneath that lies a sadistic killing machine out to murder his whole family. Mark tries so hard to convince everyone, but no one believes that Henry is evil.

This film has a good concept, but I'd say that the acting is sort of bad on Macaulay Culkin's part. All in all, I'd say this is a two 1/2 star film. It's good to see once, but not one that you'd see again and again.
