A young couple trying to cope with the loss of their child encounters two elderly sisters – one of whom brings them word from beyond the grave. 110 minutes. Unrated.
When children go bad, the usual suspects in their downfall are rounded up: parents, genetics, family environment, television, video games, the education system. But sometimes the reason a kid goes rogue just can’t be pinned down. Is Junior wreaking havoc because of alien intervention or some evil force – or is it really too many sugary snacks?
