    Well? What's in the bag? What's in the book? What's in the room? What's in the box? Eventually these and more questions that you scream in your head do get answered in this disturbing film. A former puppeteer returns to his dilapidated home that his stepfather also lives in. When a local child goes missing, the man is a suspect.

    ★★★

    A fairly fun cartoon that focuses its laughs more for kids than adults. The plot concerns itself with storing up enough food for winter, and the parks animals that are trying to do so. We have the standard reluctant hero, the blowhard, the villain, the girl, and the sidekick that never gives up. Thrills abound, and there are even a few laughs for the adults. While this film falls a bit short for the grown-ups, the kids should have a pretty fun time. A Note for those twisted like myself; be on the lookout for evil personified in the guise of a Cardinal!

It starts out with the drafting of men as young as 16 years old,…

    I don't know why it is, but no matter how old I get I can still identify with high school teen movies. Maybe it's because I liked my childhood, but wish I'd done more in high school. Maybe it's because I never kissed the first girl I ever had a crush on. I guess I'll never know, but I always have a soft spot for these types of movies when they're well done, and this one is.
