There’s Something Wrong With Miles.
So who’s head should we put in there?
So who’s head should we put in there?
A mother has a young son whose disturbing behaviour signals that an evil, possibly supernatural force has overtaken him. Fearing for her family’s safety, she must grapple with her maternal instinct to love and protect the boy in favour of investigating what - or who - is causing his dark turn. She is forced to look for answers in the past, taking us on a wild ride; one where the line between perception and reality remains blurry.

CommentsContains scenes of horror.
The material contains complex and mature themes presented in a dark tone within a thriller and horror genre. Themes include a young boy who’s body is invaded by an adult serial killer who has unfinished business, re-incarnation of souls after death, psychological disorder diagnosis versus a soul of a dead person invading a body of a living person, research about the after life, family conflicts, motherly love, gruesome murders, regression, manipulation and deception as well as good versus evil. The film is laced with suspense and contains moderate to strong impact sense of threat and menace. Themes of a serial killer possessing a body of an 8 year old boy may be upsetting, disturbing, distressing or harmful to viewers under the age of 16 years who are still developing ‘self-identity’ and defining themselves in the society.
