Joshua 2007

Joshua

Critics Consensus

Though Joshua is ultimately too formulaic, its intelligence and suspenseful buildup heighten the overall creep factor.

Movie Info

Brad (Sam Rockwell) and Abby (Vera Farmiga) Cairn have a seemingly picture-perfect life. Brad is a successful stockbroker, their son, Joshua, is a child prodigy, and Abby has just given birth to a baby girl. Ominous cracks soon begin to appear on the surface of this pretty picture. Pets mysteriously die, the baby will not stop crying, and Joshua develops an interest in mummification. The incidents may be coincidental, or Joshua's intelligence masks an extremely evil heart.

Audience Reviews for Joshua

  • Jan 28, 2007
    Incredibly disturbing film with hardly any on screen violence, yet the ideas are horrifying. It's closest cousin would be Jack Ketchum's Girl Next Door, also slated to become a film in 2007.
