Evil Has Many Faces! Evil resides in an unexpected place in this gripping, suspense-filled drama, written by Ian McEwan (Atonement) and directed by Joseph Ruben (The Stepfather, Sleeping with the Enemy). Macaulay Culkin (Home Alone) stars as Henry, an angelic-looking boy who seems loving and loyal to his parents, sister and friends. Only his cousin Mark (Elijah Wood, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy) sees what lurks behind Henry’s smile – secret thoughts and a love of deadly sadistic games. But when Mark tries to warn Henry’s family, they won’t believe him, leaving the terrified youngster alone to battle his jealous, menacing cousin. The stellar cast includes Wendy Crewson (Air Force One), David Hugh Kelly (Cujo and TV’s Hardcastle and McCormick) and David Morse (The Indian Runner).

    This movie brings back memories. Not a bad thriller and Culkin is a frightening little dude in it. Did you know that originally a guy named Jesse Bradford was supposed to be the bad kid until Culkin’s father called Fox and told them Macauley wanted to star in the film. If he didn’t get the role, he would pull his son out of Home Alone 2. Fox didn’t want to lose their Home Alone star so they gave him The Good Son too. Culkin’s father isn’t spoken highly of in Hollywood.
