| Re-defining Our Perceptions of Insanity
I was not usually a fan of movies from the past....but this one truly took my breath away~ Especially the two Kids. They are truly something special....and to be recorded down in history with such an incredible film is just remarkable! They gave me chills from beginning to end, kept me captivated right from the start....and thrilled me to the very last second~ This, in my opinion, is how you truly make a Spine-Chilling Thriller! >_< If you are a fan of the classic Hitchcock Movies like Psycho, then this one is definitely your cup of tea.... There are quite a few similarities in the way they're both shot, but what makes this film stand out above the rest was those amazingly Talented Child Actors!!!

Régis Arpin's (Thomas) death Glares gave me Shivers down my Spine....his face truly Epitomises the Core of this film!!! He has taken the term "Psycho" to a Complete Other Level - Re-Defining our Perceptions of Insanity~ However, the true Heart and Soul of this film has to be the Sensationally Stunning breakthrough performance of David Behar (Charles). In my eyes, he was the true Breakout Star of the film....every second he was on-screen, Demanded Our Attention - you can't help but be Mesmerised and Captivated by his performance!! Together the two actors have truly made history and created a bond of Epic Proportions....as I'm sure this will only be the beginning of a whole new perspective to the ways in which we'll be watching movies in the future.....

All I have left to say is - Enjoy the Ride!!! Let this film take you to places you've never been before and let it Open your Mind, Eyes and Heart to something Majestic, Awe-Inspiring and Unforgettable.
