In the tradition of Rosemary's Baby and The Others, a taut and gripping thriller about devoted parents who are willing to do anything to resurrect their murdered son. The film is directed by Nick Hamm, best known for his success with the highly stylized British film The Hole. When Jessie (Romijn-Stamos) and Paul's (Kinnear) eight year old son Adam is tragically killed on his birthday, Richard (De Niro), a doctor on the forefront of genetic research, befriends his former student Jessie and her husband at the height of their mourning. He leads the couple in a desperate attempt to reverse the rules of nature and clone their son. The experiment is successful and under Richard's watchful eye, Adam grows into a healthy and happy young boy, until his 8th birthday. After his birthday, things go horribly wrong. The "new" Adam begins to suffer from night terrors and frightening flashbacks as a sinister personality begins to emerge. Jessie and Paul are terrified of their own son and his cold, vacant stare.
Does sound like an average episode of The Outer Limits. Greg Kinnear is quite creepy though. And let's face it, anything with De Niro is a godsend, even when he's just coasting. The director Nick Hamm made the highly interesting Brit psycho-horror flick 'The Hole' a couple of years ago with the amazingly talented Thora Birch - and the then unknown Keira Knightley.
