Rebecca's cottage in the film was actually used as living quarters for nearly the entire first billed cast and the crew during filming. The garage to the next door cottage was initially used as the makeup and effects room, but was later moved to the basement of Rebecca's cottage. See more »

I'm one of those who really get easily scared by movies, and especially horror movies, of course. I'm so easy scared that it's almost embarrassing. It doesn't even really have to happen anything; if the mood is at least done almost right, I can sit in intense suspense and wait for something to happen.
So the strange thing about this movie is: I did not get scared. I mean
I probably jumped a bit in the seat one or two times, and I think I
felt a bit, and only a bit, of suspense maybe three or four minutes together, during the whole movie.
That must mean that they hardly did anything right, right? And that's right - they hardly did anything right: Most of the supposed-to-be-scare-stuff happened in broad daylight. I mean, how scary is broad daylight? And the mentioned stuff was for a big part filmed from far away, and how scary is stuff that is filmed from far away? Another thing: what did they do with the screen all the time?!? That division-stuff - disturbing!!! And I still wonder how the lead-lady figured out the secret of "now is the 13th year, so they are going to kill 13 people", for instance. Much of the plotting was completely not understandable.
Okay, one cool thing to end with: the start really freaked me out - with the place-to-place- and time-jumping.
Oh, did I mentioned that much of the acting (though not all) was completely laughable? The bad-guy-laughter from the three Zombies by the lake near the end was probably the most artificial (both concerning acting and directing) I've ever seen - and I've seen my share of oldies.
