A series of events, based in this case, occur and the searching for the person responsible for this disappearances is turned more interesting for this group of friends. Watch the trailer.

OVERVIEW AND STORY

Thriller with teenagers as main characters, which relates the story of some of them trying to live their own adventures, looking for being adults and acting in consequence. The plot is based in the hunting of a children’s serial killer, who is frightening the city and is catching the attention of Davey and his group of friends. Set in 1984, it can be seen how in a time of less advanced technology, adolescence can be evolved in an average person and how the serial killers were much difficult to catch. Besides all of this, there are situations like falling in love with the babysitter, divorce of parents and alcoholic mother among other things. Even though this movie is so much predictable and from the beginning, the end can be guessed, it is entertained and the end is unexpected enough to justify watching it.

If you click on the name you will see a gallery of photos of each one by Google. Even though Tiera makes a role of an adolescent, she has 23 and is so beautiful, she could have better roles in the future. I would like to have a ranking of the main characters in the movies that I post, a reason why if you want to give them a vote you can do it as follow:

¡SPOILERS ALERT! ¡SPOILERS ALERT!

FROM HERE THERE WILL BE CONTENT THAT TALKS DIRECTLY ABOUT SITUATIONS IN THE MOVIE, REASON WHY IF YOU WANT TO WATCH IT BEFORE TO CONTINUE IS A GOOD MOMENT TO DO THAT. WHEN YOU HAVE FINISHED YOU CAN COME BACK TO FINISH YOUR CONTRIBUTION OTHERWISE IF YOU DO NOT MIND SPOILERS YOU WILL BE MORE THAN WELCOME TO CONTINUE. THE IDEA IS NOT TO TELL THE WHOLE MOVIE BECAUSE IT WILL BE ANNOYING FROM ME WITH YOU GUYS.

THE BEST SCENES

  1. The moment that Davey is putting the walkie-talkie on the window of Mr. Mackey over the shoulders of Woody and an unknown child appears to scare them, next Davey is surprised by Mr. Mackey in the next window and also scare him.
  2. When the corpse of the child in the milk box is found on decomposition state and the last victim, who was kidnapped, holds the foot of Davey asking for help.
  3. The scene in which Mr. Mackey says to Davey that he will have to suffer the rest of his life thinking about the moment when he will return to kill him. Besides, he says to Davey that he will have to live with the guilt of the death of Woody because of his intromission.

THE END

It is original. The murder was, as everything pointed in the whole movie. Mr. Mackey kills Woody cutting his throat and leaves Davey alive to punish him with the uncertainty of knowing that he is still alive and he could come back to finish with him. Besides other things like the friendship rupture, the desolation of the neighborhood and the fact of thinking about Woody’s mum who lost her unique son.  It let us think if there was justice or as it is, in reality, there never is true justice.
