When Claire is showing John the piano room (apx. 10 min into the movie), the camera moves backwards and it reveals the shadow of the camera. The camera also touches the piece of cloth covering the piano and you can see it moving. See more »
It's my understanding... that there are, uh... twenty-three students registered... for this series of lectures on advanced musical form. Now, we all know it's not raining outside, and unless there's a fire in some other part of the building that we don't know about, there's an awful lot of people here with nothing better to do.

The first time I saw this film I was playing sick to stay home from school and watched this by myself. It really freaked me out and I wouldn't leave the living room until people got home. I was 11 or 12 years old and wish films still scared me as much because it is so much fun to be fascinated by them. In re-watching the film, it still gives me the chills. Damn, George turn on some lights! There are some great scenes in this film and the supernatural mystery is excellent. There is an awesome séance scene that is quite creepy and the revisiting of this scene later in the film is insightful, as well as disturbing. The actors in this film give excellent performances and the directing is equally superb. Anybody who really enjoys ghost stories should see this film.
