I thought the two actors that played the murderer Gordon Northcott and his young cousin Sanford Clark did a fantastic job. It left me wondering whether Gordon Northcott was seriously mentally disturbed. I also thought from the previews that the police Captain was helping her, but instead he was a complete a$$. When they finally got that little "replacement kid" to talk I just wanted to shake him - what a little snot!! The guy who played the detective was also wonderful. He was really the only likable cop in the bunch.
