Interesting setting and magic/haunted atmosphere as determined young Lee goes alone into the monster-populated Mississippi backwoods to find her stolen playmate before her father can be lynched for her disappearance. Creepy and cool. Warning: some swearing and racially-based violence; not for little kids.
