Whisper is hands down one of the better horror/suspense films I have seen in awhile. It stars Josh Holloway (Lost) and Sarah Wayne Callies (Prison Break) with a great performance from Blake Woodruff (Cheaper By The Dozen 1 & 2)
Holloway plays ex-convict Max Truemont who just wants to settle down and go legit. His dreams of owning his own diner go up in smoke after his felonious past interferes with his getting a loan. Max eventually agrees to kidnap a young boy and hold him for ransom. Along with his reluctant girlfriend Roxanne (Callies), Vince, and and ringleader Sydney they keep the boy David (Woodruff) in an isolated cabin.
However there is more to David than meets the eyes. And soon he begins to play on their emotions and slowly turns them against each other. This movie in a word awesome, it doesn't insult the viewer and actually is a great and original story. The actors really embody their roles making you actually care what happens to them what happens to them. Woodruff is wonderfully creepy while Holloway proves he can carry a movie.
