The Good Son Review


A young boy stays with his aunt and uncle, and befriends his cousin who's the same age. But his cousin begins showing increasing signs of violent behavior.

Evil resides in an unexpected place in this gripping, suspense-filled drama.  Macaulay Culkin stars as Henry, an angelic-looking boy who seems loving and loyal to his parents, sister and friends.  Only his cousin Mark (Elijah Wood) sees what lurks behind Henry’s smile- secret thoughts and a love of deadly games.  But when Mark tries to warn Henry’s family, they won’t believe him, leaving the terrified youngster alone to battle his jealous, menacing cousin.
