In the link between the movie reel and nightclub scenes a train is shown going past in reverse. The audio is convincing, however the headlights on the train give it away. The cars under the bridge are also in reverse. See more »

Chills, thrills and scary scenes written , produced and directed by David S. Goyer
This is an astonishing story about a vengeful specter who kills everybody go into his past . While Casey ( Odette Yustman ) is babysitting a little boy and his baby brother, she has a horrible nightmare involving a masked dog and an creepy child, and she tells her best friend ( Meagan Good ) over the cellular . Casey is unsettling because of suddenly appearing by this boy, and with some words as ¨ I want to born ¨ and when she goes to the ophthalmologist, he asks if she has a twin sister or brother . She asks her daddy ( James Remar ) and tells her that her mum lost a son that deceased in the birth . Casey suspects that she is haunted by the spirit of her twin . She encounters a letter addressed to an old woman named Sofi Kozma ( Jane Alexander ) and a photography at home that belonged to her mummy . Then she goes to a retirement house to meet Sofi , a survivor of the Joseph Mengele experiments during the WWII Holocaust . Later on , Casey asks help for experts on mysterious issues about a book of mirrors ( Gary Oldman , Idris Elba ) . After that , they form a Jewish exorcism with ten persons .
This frightening movie displays terror, shocks, hard-edged drama and creepy images. While the look is suitable atmospheric and eerie, the argument stretches plausibility to the breaking point . The film is a crossover of various terror movies , as the spooky phantoms of pale complexion of Japanese stories directed by Takashi Mike and Hideo Nakata as ¨The Grudge ¨ , ¨ The ring ¨ and ¨ Dark water ¨ and exorcism and diabolic possession of ¨ Omen ¨and of course ¨ The exorcist¨ , adding Joseph Mengele's Nazi experiments of ¨The boys from Brasil ¨ . The artistic technicians create a creepy make-up of horrible and bloody images though are also made by means of computer generator. The gutsy murders are gruesomely executed and equally graphic . The film is constituted by a well done terror set pieces with creepy and ghastly atmosphere . The specter appearance delivers the goods with hair raising chills and full scares. The motion picture is regularly written and directed by David S. Goyer . He is an expert writer ( Blade trilogy ,Batman , Flashforward series ) and producer (Mission to Mars , Ghost rider )though occasionally directs films ( The invisible , Blade : Trinity ). Rating : 5,5 acceptable and passable horror film.
