When Aubrey goes into the dark room and picks up the picture, the picture should be black. It was in the developer last. It would have had to go into the stop bath to stop developing, and then the fixer to not go black when it was exposed to real light. See more »

13 May 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Its not that I didn't get it, I did but the problem was there wasn't really much to get, it was boring he should concentrate on making a decent solid film instead of trying to mix it all up and blend different stories together, its like it took him 5 mins to think of each "scary/jumpy part" and then 5 mins to make it! It just kept jumping from scene to scene building up to a very disappointing climax.

The milk drinkin girl, wtf to be honest! just weird.

The moaning teacher LOL! the ONLY decent thing about this film was the old guy on the bus playing peek a boo with the girl, that was great! 3 funny parts, no scary... not a very successful horror film hey?
