The Good Son is a 1993 horror thriller starring Macaulay Culkin. Directed by Joseph Ruben, the movie tells the story of 12-year-old Mark (Elijah Wood), who goes to live with his aunt and uncle, Susan (Wendy Crewson) and Wallace Evans (Daniel Hugh Kelly), after the death of his mother. Upon arriving at the Evans home Mark is introduced to his cousins Henry (Macaulay Culkin) and Connie (Quinn Culkin). Initially, Mark and Henry get along and have a friendly relationship. After a period of time, however, Henry starts to show an unusual fascination with death, and begins to display increasingly psychotic behavior. Henry uses a crossbow to kill a neighbor's dog, and then throws a dummy onto an expressway, which causes a terrible traffic accident. Mark wants to tell people what Henry has done, and even attempts to discuss the situation with his uncle Wallace, but Henry turns things around and puts all of the blame on Mark. Later on, Henry suggests that he will attempt to kill his own sister, and the lives of the entire Wallace family are threatened.moreless
