Anna, the first name of the possessed girl, stays the same when spelled backwards, like in a mirror. See more »


Ben returns to deal with the large mirror and fires a volley at the mirror from what looks like a Glock pistol. After the second volley, the pistol is empty. But, there are clicking sounds. A Glock, as with most semiauto pistols, wouldn't click after the last round in a magazine is fired. The slide would be locked back and the firing mechanism would be inoperable. The camera then shows a front shot of the pistol with the slide forward. You can see the breech end of the barrel in place in the ejection port. In the next scene, the slide on Ben's pistol is locked to the rear. See more »

One of the better horror movies these days
18 August 2008 | by (Woodinville, Washington) – See all my reviews

This movie is certainly not the best horror movie I have seen but out of horror movies that come out now of days it is one of the better ones. The death scenes were a little over the top and gory but at least the movie didn't really on mostly gore that a lot of horror movies these days do. Keifer Suterland was pretty good and there were a few jump scares. I like it that they added a little bit of mystery to it. I give this movie a B for effort. It did seem a little long though, they could have made it at least a little bit shorter. They had some cool special effects like when the mirror got shot and the holes repaired themselves. Overall it was not that bad of a movie.
