George Harvey had to have dug out a rather large amount of earth to build the underground room where he murdered Susie. When we see him luring Susie into the room there is no pile of dirt anywhere in view. He would have also had to use the dirt to fill in the hole after dismantling the room. Where did all of that dirt go? Additionally, he digs this deep underground room in one night, in the middle of winter, using only a shovel. This is impossible since, in Pennsylvania, the ground is typically frozen solid throughout the winter, and deep digging cannot be done without special equipment, such as a steam shovel. See more »
I remember being really small; too small to see over the edge of a table. There was a snow globe, and I remember the penguin who lived inside the globe. He was all alone in there, and I worried for him.

This movie shouldn't be my cup of tea. I'm pretty cynical and my favourite film genres are sci-fi and horror in that order. However, this film blew me away.
I don't understand all of the negative reviews concentrating on the CGI. It's supposed to be depicting an other-worldly realm between earth and heaven - what do you expect / want to see if you go to Heaven, grim city streets with alleys full of garbage and low-lifes? I found the imagery to be exactly what I would hope from heaven - endless possibilities bounded only by imagination - and it delivered that feeling.
As for the plot and the acting, I thought it was first-rate from start to finish.
If you still have a soul in this cynical world then I'm sure you'll like it - don't listen to the miserable horde.
