Goofs

When Sarah returns home one afternoon, and goes into her bedroom, she quickly closes the door behind her. We hear the distinct sound of a lock or latch being fastened while her hand is briefly on the door knob. The viewers are to assume that she has locked the door. But when Miss Thetford then tries to come into the room, and the camera gives a close shot of the door knob while she's twisting it, we see that the only way to lock that door is with a skeleton key. There is no key in the hole, and there would have been no way for Sarah to have locked the door so quickly unless she had left the skeleton key in the hole. See more »

The End?
25 October 2001 | by (Salem, Ohio) – See all my reviews

I thought the movie was very good. Thrilling. It had me literaly on the edge of my seat. But the ending was rather confusing. When it was over I said "Right, so they end it." I think they should have made a sequel.
