Christian - Faith Families - take caution
What strikes me most as "dark" ability in this feature film is that the children are not wholly in control of their powers. The boy, for example, can scarcely control his telekinesis unless he is playing on his harmonica(tool), which is generally how demons and otherkind communicate with inanimate objects - by unconscious force, playful even.
The boy never realizes he is exercising powers that a higher being may or may not will for him to use. He uses them for play, even - the puppet scene! ...
The strangest and most disturbing part of this movie is when the children fit nrst arrive at the manor of the man who adopts them and mentally/psychically convinces the adults to leave the table through very subtle suggestion - if we look at this objectively, the children partake in mind control, without any thought of the consequences.
This movie has a great message, but it is peppered upon peppered without immoral use of ability and, quite frankly, "magic". It is one of the reasons I sit with my children whenever we are watching this video (as they love it), so that I can remind them when the children are actually ACTING AGAINST nature and god, and when they are not.
i, however, love the ending, and it is one which brings much nostalgia
