liked this film, it was well put together and combined a controversial theme
with a riveting storyline that will freak you out and have you on the edge of
your seat right up till the very end.
This is the
tale of Paul and Jessie Duncan and their beloved son Adam who is eight years
old. The victim of circumstances gone horribly wrong, young Adam is killed in
an accident and the bereft couple are grieving and trying to pick up the
pieces. Jessie has been told that she can no longer conceive, further
compounding the tragedy that they'll never have another child again.
approached by a genetic scientist Dr Wells that with a cell from Adam, he can
give them back the son that they lost on one condition; they leave their home
and everything they know and move very far away and never come back. Despite
the legalities surrounding human cloning, the couple, anxious to get their
child back agree and all goes well until young Adam has his eighth birthday
and starts to have a series of horrific nightmares and all of a sudden the
tranquility of the Duncan's surroundings is shattered when they found that all
in not as it seems.
general overview and I can assure you that you will not believe what happens
during the film, it's that compelling to watch. Add to that some very scary
nightmare footage and you know that you are on the track to something pretty
The plot is
really well paced and at no stage do you get the impression that it's going to
slow down at all. The actors deliver very convincing performances and the
characterisation of young Adam is positively chilling.
The video and
audio for this film are clear and concise and do justice to the overall
creepiness of the movie. When you watch the nightmare scenes you certainly get
an appreciation of the art that went into play to get the right degree. The
use of a small town setting plays well in upping the ante in terms of a small
town hiding a big secret very well, even though they are none the wiser as to
on the film however the one that stands out the most in my books is all the
alternate endings. Make sure you check them all out as there are some real
surprises there as you can see the finishes that they were playing with and
you make the decision whether they made the right one or not. I think they
did, though it did leave itself open to questions.
There is also
a comprehensive commentary that is entertaining and gives an insight as to the
film making process and a theatrical trailer.
This is the
sort of movie to watch at night with a large tub of popcorn and scare yourself
