Product Description:

Macaulay Culkin goes bad in this story about a boy who tries to eliminate his family members one by one. Elijah Wood, who has gone on to an impressive career as an adult, costars. Audiences should see the 1956 movie, THE BAD SEED, for an interesting comparison.

Plot Synopsis:

After his mother dies and his father goes to Japan on a business trip, eight-year-old Mark is sent to live for a few weeks with his cousin Henry and his family. Although Mark is initially happy playing with Henry, he soon begins to suspect that all is not right with the seemingly innocent-looking young boy.
