The film takes us into Jamie's world, where reality blurs with the fantastical. His discovery of a mysterious pit in the forest, inhabited by creatures he calls "Trogs," becomes the focal point of his increasingly troubled psyche. As Jamie's innocent crush on his babysitter Sandy turns into an obsession, his decisions lead to a series of unsettling events. The film masterfully captures the isolation and the dark turns of a young mind, without resorting to gratuitous horror, making it a compelling watch for those who appreciate psychological thrillers with a touch of the supernatural.
