In the first bathroom scene Leah pushes the stall door out, scaring Molly. But later Molly pushes the stall doors inward looking for the person whispering.
[Dr. Emerson steps into the garden room]
Oh, Dr. Emerson. You got my message.
I-I called you. I left you a message.
No. No message.
Then… what are you… doing here?
Well, it's your birthday party. Of course I here. Just a few more minutes now. So how does it feel?
How does 'what' feel?
[the whispers start]
Your new life… We're all here for you, Molly. We've watched you grow. We've chosen 'you'.
Just go read a book or plant a tree. Anything but this.
I actually registered on this site to post this comment. I feel it is
my duty to save you precious moments of life that are better spent
This film used the normal scare tactics, i.e. suspenseful building
music, quick appearance on camera of people or things, reflections in
mirrors, etc., but nothing new or original. The little whispers in the
background try to make you nervous, but it leads to a dead end.
Speaking of endings, just when you think the movie has built to where
it will explain exactly what is going on, it ends. One minute it seems
all hell is about to break loose, and then there is a very weak
resolution and the movie is over. The best way to describe it is to
take a movie that is 2 hours long, and cut out the last half hour
except for the final few minutes. I actually had to go home and verify
that the theater didn't skip a reel or two. Unfortunately for us, they
Words can not express how terribly this movie ends. I am amazed that
this ever made it into a theater. Don't waste your time and money on
the theater, or even a rental. Hell, don't even waste your time
watching it for free on TV. I've had bowel movements much more
interesting and fulfilling than this movie. Maybe the director had a
vision in his head, I just wish he would have let everyone else in on
