This film touches on the sensitive subject of grief regarding the loss of a loved one, Amanda Crew plays the role of a young woman who just longs to be a mother brilliantly. Adam Brody is great as a young husband working hard at holding onto his marriage in the difficult place he finds himself in. Sheila McCarthy as Ann Pelway expresses her guilt in what she may have done with regards to Isabelle, in regards to the titular menace, Zoe Belkin is creepy as hell as Isabelle, she has an intimidating look throughout proceedings.
Writer Donald Martin and Director Robert Heydon make a decent effort to take a tragic story about grief and how it effects us all and the guilt we sometimes feel. You certainly feel bad for Larissa and Matt when you watch this and will be freaked out when you discover more out about Isabelle.
