When Evan Madison fails to show up for work, police go to his home where his ten-year-old son, Brad, is found, unharmed and alone. He is stoic, sitting in front of the TV playing a video game, and covered in blood. In the upstairs bedroom, lie his parents bludgeoned to death. Brad confesses to killing them, but it makes no sense. Is Brad covering some someone else or the evil seed born to kill.
