While shooting on the Island of Llanddwyn, Anglesey. Demi Moore paid for 20 crates of beer to be delivered to the Island for all the crew to get drunk after a rough week of filming. See more »
When Rachel is struggling with the anchor chain, the padlock changes position between shots. In one shot it dangles a few inches below her feet (which, by the way, would mean there's enough slack in the chain to escape). In another shot it's at her ankles, where it was fastened in the first place. See more »
Why is it everyone paints their boats the exact same color as their houses?
Well, that's actually a tradition here. The wife needs to be able to look out on the water and know her husband's okay.
That's very romantic.
And we also get a tax-break on the paint, which is also very romantic.

not a bad movie at all. more of a love story than a ghost story - but the two are woven together pretty successfully. The ending falls short, but the rest of the film is well planned.
Moore is an odd choice for the lead, but she turns out pretty good - despite a general unbelievable reaction to later events in the story ( but this is more script ).
some beautiful cinematography and settings, and a few creepy moments. Some good acting too ( but some mediochre stuff mixed in ). Its clear why this movie was not mainstream enough for the theatre, but its a worthy DVD rental or download. On the whole Its a strange one - i thought it was very good, but also not very good at the same time.
