I just saw a couple of snippets of this movie a couple of years ago but it seemed interesting. A little like 'Home Alone' but with a mean streak. This expressionless faced teen was actually trying to kill the mob bad guys. There's a place for it in my video library I think; somewhere between 'Home Alone' and 'The Exorcist'.

From what I remember, the kid never says anything and is/was some kind of psychiatric patient. His parents are killed by the bad guys in a home invasion type robbery looking for money. It's filmed in a rural wooded setting with a farm type house with some outbuildings and the kid sets different wicked traps for the bad guys as they chase him around.

can you give us any other details? this question is pretty vague. – DForck42 Mar 18 '13 at 3:17
Ok @DForck42, I'll try to add more of what I can remember. I'll edit the question. – Morgan Mar 18 '13 at 15:44

Is it The Aggression Scale? The Storyline seems pretty similar.

This movie is about a newly bailed mob boss named Bellavance (Ray Wise) and his band of hit men (including Derek Mears- 'Jason Voorhees') who head off to find $500,000 that has gone missing. They take out anybody that has come in contact with the money, but they eventually track down a family that they believe have the money. They don't realize that the son (Owen) has been involved in some unsavory incidents as a result of his "Aggression". They are soon to find out just who and what they're up against.

The trailer:

Thank's @Walt, I'll check that one when I get a moment. – Morgan Mar 19 '13 at 15:20
Yes that's it, 'The Aggression Scale': A psychological test measuring the frequency of overt aggressive behaviors that may result in the physical or psychological injury to others... The kid just about aced the test. – Morgan Mar 20 '13 at 7:42
