|Original Theatrical Poster|
Dark, and darkly funny, suspense-thriller, with terrific performances from all involved, especially the young stars, James Freedson-Jackson and Hays Wellford, and a charmingly malevolent Kevin Bacon. The film's main fault is a slow, borderline dull first third, which may turn off some viewers. But those who stick with it will be rewarded with a rich, taut suspense movie, with plenty to offer and a terrific climax. Who would've though that the director of such a terrible movie as Clown (2014), could make this modern classic? Highly recommended.
