There’s nothing that endears a film to its audience like the rape and murder of a child. Arguably it’s the post-modern take on the ‘Boy Meets Girl’ theme. However, outside of American Werewolf In London I have never come across a film trying to make a ‘heart-warming’ story about murder.
Suffice to say this film is one that sets its stall out very early. Those of you who have read the 2002 novel of the same name will be familiar with its premise.
