In the 2021 horror film "Son," director Ivan Kavanagh brings to life the story of Laura (Andi Matichak), a mother who will do anything to protect her son David (Luke David Blumm) from the forces of evil. The movie begins with a tense scene in a hospital room where a young David is being treated for an injury to his head. Laura is by his side, looking terrified but relieved he is alive. A police officer comes in to ask David a few questions, but he is unable to remember what happened to him.

Fast forward eight years later, and David is now a little boy with an intense attachment to his mother. They live in a small town where Laura works as a nurse, and David goes to school. While at school, David befriends a girl named Chris (Kristine Nielsen), and they bond over their love of comic books.

However, one day, Laura starts noticing strange things happening around her. She receives a threatening letter in her locker at work, and she begins to see a mysterious figure following her around town. She starts to become increasingly paranoid, but the local police brush off her concerns as the imaginings of a stressed-out single mom. Determined to protect her son, Laura takes matters into her own hands and decides to investigate on her own.

What follows is a harrowing journey that takes Laura into the dark world of cults, demon possession, and evil supernatural forces. As she delves deeper into the investigation, she realizes that David is the target of this evil entity, and she must find a way to protect him at all costs.

As the tension builds, the film's horror elements come to the forefront, with jump scares, moments of extreme gore, and a sense of impending doom. Emile Hirsch is outstanding as Paul, Laura's friend, and confidant, and a man who is fighting his own demons.

But at its heart, "Son" is a mother's love story, and Andi Matichak's performance as Laura is both heart-wrenching and empowering. She gives her all in every scene, whether it's screaming in terror, fighting off the bad guys, or sharing tender moments with her son.

Luke David Blumm's performance as David is also impressive, making us feel his vulnerability and innocence, and his fierce love for his mother.

Throughout the film, there are several twists and turns, some more predictable than others, but always keeping the audience guessing. The film's pacing is excellent, building the tension and suspense to a satisfying climax that ties up loose ends while still leaving a few questions unanswered.

Overall, "Son" is an intense, heart-pumping horror thriller that will leave you shaken and stirred. It's a complex story with fully developed characters and great performances that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end.

Son is a 2021 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 38 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.6 and a MetaScore of 54.
