Even though this is an older movie, I had never seen it until a few weeks ago. This movie was suspenseful, and held my interest throughout. Recommend to anyone who likes a movie that gives the creeps, without a bunch of blood and gore.

"After Macaulay Culkin became an overnight star in the "Home Alone" series his agents were anxious to cast him in roles that were very different from his comedic performances. In "The Good Son" Culkin portrays a character that is many watts away from "Home Alone". In this film his character is obviously disturbed and his evil side emerges when his family takes in his cousin (played by Elijah Wood) after the death of the cousin's mother. When the Culkin character realizes his own mother is starting to bond with his cousin, he takes drastic measures to halt the relationship. Superb performances, creepy camera work, and an intense well-written script makes "The Good Son" a must-see film. The movie is great to watch on a winter afternoon as the film , I believe, was shot mostly in the northeast in the dead of winter near the Atlantic ocean. Unfortunately, the DVD doesn't come with any extras, but the film contains both the full and widescreen formats for your enjoyment. Although nearly all the critics panned the film, "The Good Son" has so far grossed over $60 million worldwide."
Amazing! my favorite thriller!

"great dvd! there's (at least one) deleted scenes that were cut. one was when they were on the bridge singing some song..cant remember it now (youtube it. it's been 15 years or so since the films' release...I still never understood the negative reviews about it. One of the most underrated films ever. 10/10"
