Katherine-Actually, the main character's name is Johnny Smith. The little boy's name is either Sean or Tommy. Norma-Good eyes!

Actually, when the mother and little boy first come into the hall, the mother calls him Sean, and either tells him to be quiet, or quit whining--I forget which. Then when Stillson grabs the boy, the mother screams, "Tommy!" Then in the epilogue, when the young photographer is testifying about getting the picture of Stillson using the boy as a human shield, *he* refers to the boy as "Matthew Robeson."

Actually, the boy's name is Jonny, not Tommy. But I see what you mean. It is a bit strange.
