Goofs

In the children's home the staff administer Cody a sedative via a syringe. The amount in the syringe (as in volume) is too high, the location of the injection close to the elbow in the upper arm is unusual, but foremost the injection doesn't leave a mark in his arm whatsoever. See more »

Who cares if they got the Genre Wrong! GREAT GREAT MOVIE!
20 August 2016 | by (Seattle,Washington) – See all my reviews

Okay here we go... I am so sick of all the people writing reviews where they pick apart the Genre classification, like that some how makes the content of the movie bad because of their "say-so". Get a damn life and quit being a anal retentive Armchair sycophant. Couldn't you just say they got the sub categories wrong and be done with it. No one really gives a crap. If you think it really matters, Then write to the Studio that produced the film and complain to them. (guaranteed your letter will wind up in the round file") Instead, write a fair review about the actual "Movie" and move on. NOW... I liked this movie, it was done well, great acting ( the kid stole the show in my opinion). Filming was great, suspense slow and grinding, Music was good and the special effects were actual good for this type of movie. It reminded me of the 1984 movie Dreamscape with Dennis Quaid and David Patrick Kelly where he helps the kid with the same kind of problem. Done well and It was great entertainment. Enjoy.
