When the eight-year-old son, David, of a wealthy New England socialite is abducted, his kidnapper Max Harper and his seedy associates assume it will be a routine kidnapping in exchange for a large ransom. Unknown to the kidnappers, the shy and reserved David actually has a hidden agenda of his own, and a mysterious way of tapping into the minds of others. Soon, Max will wish that he had never kidnapped David, much less even heard of him.

Did You Know?


Belgian director Erik Van Looy dropped out of this film after only a couple of weeks.


David Sandborn:
How come she's not your girl friend? The way she acts around you, seems like she likes you.

Vince Delayo:
What the hell would you know?

David Sandborn:
Last Night, I could hear her through the walls, she was praying, she was asking for god's forgivness, for a secret, a secret she's been keeping, even from Max.

Vince Delayo:
What secret?

User Review

Solid movie

Rating: 7/10

Saw this yesterday, knew absolutely nothing about it beforehand so no
preconceptions. Also I have never watched either Lost or Prison Break
so hadn't a clue who the leads were, and I must say that I was
pleasantly surprised by it.

Solid acting, (the kid doesn't come across as a precocious brat, and
the leads don't do too much chewing of scenery) a good story that is
well paced, and despite the obvious Omen parallels, it was pretty
original all the same. I was a bit surprised to see that it never
really got a break at the box office, it deserves better.

It also reminded me of another film that I caught a few years ago,
again I knew nothing about it beforehand and it turned out to be pretty
good, the pic was Frailty (,) which
I'd recommend to anyone who liked Whisper…
