WHISPER is a very chilling portrait of the child from Hell. Literally.

Josh Holloway (LOST) is a down on his luck guy, trying to finance a restuarant with his girlfriend. But alas, this is not to be. Enter a friend with a plan. Kidnap a rich kid, parents pay, easy money. And the kidnapping goes off without a hitch, but then, the fun begins!

WHISPER is a cross between THE OMEN, BAD SEED and THE GOOD SON. Little David is one kid no one wants to mess with. Unfortunately for this group, they will soon pay the price for their misdeeds.

I really enjoyed WHISPER. It kept my interest from beginning to end. It was scary good fun and the twist at the end, I didn't expect it and was a pleasant surprise!

So, the verdict is, try WHISPER. It'll make a good date movie. And a compelling argument for birth control.

Passable knock off of The Omen
Andres C. Salama | Buenos Aires, Argentina | 12/09/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"In this terror film, the most inept band of kidnappers in world history abducts the child from hell, an eight year old adopted boy from a very wealthy family in New England, who's in fact the antichrist or something. One by one, the kidnappers will pay for their deed. The film looks like an unauthorized knock off of The Omen, and while mildly entertaining, is hardly a great film. Made with a no name cast (except perhaps for Michael Rooker, who twenty years ago has a cult hit in Henry, Portrait of a serial killer) the good scenery from New England in winter and a good hand in the directing adds a little to this passable movie. Just don't take it too seriously."
Damien goes to summer camp
Terence Daryl Flood | Merry Olde England | 01/14/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I'm not sure who wrote the blurb on the DVD box which described this movie as a tale of "Bone chilling terror" but all I can say in reply is that the writer must be very easily scared and should probably stick to Disney movies. The movie isn't scary at all and it lumps together any number of tried and tested horror movie cliches such as an out of season summer camp, a spooky kid and a lone girl chased through the woods. There are moments which bring to mind other horror movies, such as The Shining, Damien: Omen II & The Blaire Witch Project, all of which may have influenced the director. However despite these short comings the movie worked, at least for me it did. It was entertaining, well acted, well cast and although many of the themes have been used before the movie as a whole was sufficiently different to hold the attention and the ending came as a total surprise. Michael Rooker and Josh Holloway played their parts well and with conviction but newcomer Blake Woodruff as the boy, David, was perfectly cast and played the part with relish and surprising maturity for one so young. In short an entertaining movie that I'd happily recommend but if you're looking for something to scare your socks off look elsewhere."
Not Jesus...

"When it comes to eeevil kid movies, there are some fabulous examples. WHISPER is one of the better ones. It's up there w/ THE OMEN, JOSHUA, THE BAD SEED, and BLOODY BIRTHDAY. This time, our devil-child is kidnapped by a gang of ne'er-do-wells who have no idea that they have abducted the instrument of their doom! David (Blake Woodruff) only appears to be an angelic 8yo boy. In reality, he is far more! David has many supernatural surprises in store for these kidnappers. They will regret their crime and pay for it dearly. WHISPER delivers the shivers, along w/ some suspenseful thrills. There's even a nice, wicked twist toward the end! Awesome stuff!..."
