This peculiar thriller doesn't deliver enough jolts to leave the audience screaming.
There's wonderful use made of a Maine port town, and Ruben gets a dizzying thrill or two out of overhead shots, but the conceptual overload finally prevents this from coming together.
A summer camp classic.
The Good Son has a handsome, scenic look that sustains interest, and a suspenseful ending that is quite literally gripping.
You sit there laughing at Culkin's best comedy ever. If only this movie wasn't supposed to be a horror picture.
Where were the responsible adults when this thing was made?
Unhappily, although Ian McEwan's screenplay has its strong points, and Ruben skillfully builds tension and suspense, this updated, gender-bent Bad Seed falters at key points.
Creepy '90s thriller about murderous kid has violence.
I guarantee you this would have been 100% more effective if Wood and Culkin switched roles
A second-rate thriller with first-rate production values.
Not a good movie, but a creepy performance by Culkin rescues it.
An unintentionally uproarious melodrama; a must-see for fans of the truly terrible
Macaulay Culkin is really a good actor. This movie was really good.
Macaulay Culkin is creepy
This was a great performance piece for Elijah Wood and Macaulay Culkin. They were both extremely well polished and realistic. The story is convincing and effective mainly due to their performances. The plot is very creepy and a well done child horror.
It pains me (a little) to say this, as much as I like Elijah Wood, but this one blew chunks. In all fairness, it's not Elijah's fault. This just doesn't work on any level.
