When Bryan (Daly) goes down to the wine cellar and gets a bottle of wine (at about 45 min. mark), it appears to be a brown bottle with a white label. It looks the same when the scene shifts to him trying to open the trunk. But a few moments later, when the scene shifts to him sitting at the table eating, with the bottle of wine quite obvious, talking about "what's in the trunk"...the wine bottle is green with an obviously colorful label.

I really liked this film. Like my title says it was clever and scary, maybe even a little too much in places. At one point, I must admit, I had my hands in front of my eyes.
A 30 something lawyer moves into his aunts large house after her death. He soon experiences signs that the house may be haunted, but is it haunted or is it all in his head? Either way it makes for a scary movie, and that is what's clever about this film. It leaves you with questions. Good questions, not holes in the script, but intelligent thought provoking stuff. OK maybe that's going a bit far, it's not Freud or anything but it is good solid cinema. Good acting and an evenly paced well executed script. Nice to see Tom Arnold too.
