The Rabid Dog’s House is a recurring feature at Wicked Horror where contributor Justin Steele uncovers hidden gems, lost classics, and overlooked indie offerings. Flying solo or with the occasional guest, he will discuss an array of topics covering film, literature, and television. Check out the latest installment below. In this episode we’re looking back at 1993’s The Good Son!

Directed by Joseph Ruben, The Good Son stars Elijah Wood as Mark, a young boy left in the care of New England relatives after the death of his mother (Ashley Crow). Once there, Mark discovers that his cousin Henry (Macaulay Culkin) has a dark side. Mark realizes he needs to convince his aunt Susan (Wendy Crewson) before it’s too late. Strong performances and thrilling special-effects make The Good Son a must-see psychological thriller.
