I watched this one three times already. I think both boys do an amazing job. Jesse James is so good as the scared younger brother, and Kevin Zegers aces his role as the sceptical yet thoughful older brother. It's the psychological terror that invades into their minds, not so much the actual visual transformation. That leaves a lot to the viewer's personal imagination and makes the story quite scary, especially if you allow the eerie plot to affect you.
