Bil’s rating (out of 5): BB.
Macaulay Culkin and Elijah Wood play cousins who spend a summer together, with Wood the guest and Culkin the picture-perfect son of the household…or is he? Wood begins to witness some very odd behaviour from his kinsman, most notably evil pranks that point to a downright diabolical personality. Taking an average Hollywood thriller and making it about young children is positively tasteless, but they could have at least done something different with the material than is seen in every film of its kind. The grand finale is so ridiculous it is downright campy.
