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.

Did You Know?
Belgian director Erik Van Looy dropped out of this film after only a couple of weeks.
How come she's not your girl friend? The way she acts around you, seems like she likes you.
What the hell would you know?
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.
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 (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0264616/,) which
I'd recommend to anyone who liked Whisper…
