Storyline

While babysitting a boy and his baby brother, Casey Beldon has a dreadful nightmare involving a weird dog and an evil child, and she tells her best friend Romy over the phone. Casey is haunted by this boy, and when she goes to the ophthalmologist, he asks if she has a twin brother or sister. She asks her father and discovers that her mother lost a son that died in the womb. Casey suspects that she is haunted by the spirit of her brother. She finds a letter addressed to a woman called Sofi Kozma and a creepy picture at home that belonged to her mother. She goes with Romy to a retirement home to meet Sofi, a survivor of the experiments during the Holocaust. But Sofi tells Casey that she had never met her mother and later calls Casey to tell her she is in great danger. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

When Rabbi Sendak opens the Hebrew book in his office, he thumbs through it in the wrong direction. Hebrew is written in the opposite direction to English; a real rabbi would have opened the book and read it from right to left. See more »

Goofs

When Casey gives the Book of Mirrors to Rabbi Sendak, he places it on his desk in front of him, with the front cover facing up and the spine on the left like any normal book. But the book is in Hebrew, which reads from right to left, so that the pages are turned from left to right while reading - the reverse of books in European languages. So the face-up closed position for the book would be with the spine on the right - and a Talmudic scholar would automatically set down a book facing this way. See more »

Need to stick with it.
5 July 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a movie that really picks up in the second act. The first half relies a little too heavily on predictable spooks that don't make a lot of sense, and flaunting the main actress about in revealing clothing. However after a certain point you can notice the film starting to focus and becoming more creative and daring.

I'm only familiar with the Unrated DVD version, but given the choice it's often the most complete version anyhow.

In music and sound effects, you'll notice obvious influences from The Grudge, but nothing that is a plain ripoff. Fans of Silent Hill will see some influence as well which spices up the second half quite a bit. You need to stick with it, and get past the uninspired, cookie-cutter horror bits in order to see what is really being offered from this film.
