Did You Know?
The film makes many oblique references to
The Shining. The number 237 crops up, which was the same number of the spooky hotel room Danny was forbidden to go into; there are also words written on a mirror, a ballroom and an axe.
When Jess is driving with her son, something hits the windscreen causing an obvious splatter of blood which visibly fills the windscreen (1:27:18) yet when she pulls over (1:27:21) there's only a stream of blood.
Oh you're just having a bad dream, that's all baby. That's all it was. Bad dreams make you think you're seeing things that you haven't. You know what I do when I have a bad dream? I close my eyes and I think of something nice – like being here with you.
One of the best mysteries lately
This movie is really amazing. I recommend it a 100%. It plays with your
mind from the very beginning until the very end. It just makes you
think all the time and even when the credits roll you are left thinking
and considering, and I mean that in the good way. Some movies leave you
thinking "Why did that happen? It made no sense whatsoever.". Not this.
However, in order to understand everything you must really pay
attention to all the details, some lines, some specific shots and then
I promise, it will all make sense. Of course, if you have someone to
discuss it with after it is over, will make things a lot more
interesting and engaging. I just want to say that this movie is not a
horror and doesn't have any "jump" moments. It is a pure mystery and I
am sure that any mystery fan would truly enjoy the experience.
I am not going to give away anything concerning the plot, because this
will just spoil the pleasure from all the twists and turns this movie
takes you through. This is my advice: Do not read anything about this
movie or watch any trailers, before you actually see it. Believe me, it
is going to be a lot more fun like this. The story is extremely
engaging and the end is very satisfying. New elements are constantly
added when you least expect them and the movie actually answers all the
questions it asks, or at least provides you with enough clues to solve
the puzzles yourself.
Melissa George gives probably her best performance up to date. She
really helps a lot in making the movie what it is. She has a great
potential in her as an actress and I hope this opens even more doors
All I can say is, see this movie! You will not be disappointed and it
will keep you guessing and guessing and then surely make you talk a lot
about it. Don't you just love when that happens?
