Waiting for minimum critic reviews


After she becomes pregnant with twins, Olivia is haunted by nightmares of dead soldiers. Her husband Michael passes them off as the result of indigestion. He doesn't believe in ghosts. When Olivia holds Griffin, her newborn baby boy, a feeling of dread comes over her. When she holds his fraternal twin Teddy, she feels nothing but joy. As the boys grow up their dissimilarity in looks and behavior becomes increasingly apparent. Griffin keeps to himself, playing alone with Mr. Budge, the ventriloquist dummy his grandmother gave him for Christmas. He grows fat and jealous of his twin brother, who's athletic and popular with schoolmates. After Teddy dies from a mysterious fall while hiking with Griffin, Olivia and Michael move to a town next to an abandoned military base. Griffin has left home to live with a relative. As Olivia explores the ruins of old Fort Ord, her recurring nightmare is about to become reality.
