The studio cut $2 million out of the film's budget just days before shooting began. Director Mark Pellington was furious, having vowed not to make the same concessions that plagued his previous film Arlington Road (1999). See more »
When Klein is looking at his wife's drawings right after she dies, he stops at a dark drawing. When he looks up, we can see in the long shot that he is on a different page. See more »
Soundtrack listing, song Half Light, which plays over the credits. The movie credits for this song say, "Additional Lyrics by Indrid Cold," the Mothman character of the movie. Toward the end of the song, there is a muffled, whispering voice, similar to one of the prophetic voice heard at various times in the movie. The voice continues just past the end of the song and to the end of the credits, but the words are indiscernible. See more »
The film is simply terrific, fantastic special effects, good plot and a really shocking and surprising ending! This is really a horror film mixed with a thriller that has respected my own perspectives. I suggest it to all the people who liked films like "The sixth sense" and "The others"...It's almost a masterpiece of his genre!
