Did You Know?


In the scene where Julianne Moore's character picks up her daughter from her brother's (approximately 17-18 minutes in) there is a poster for "The Night of the Living Dead" (1968) on the wall of the brother's apartment. Both films were filmed in and around the city of Pittsburgh, PA. See more »


Adam (as David) says in his childhood home there are 10 windows; 11 if you count the star in the front door. When Dr. Harding drives to his childhood home, which the audience knows is the one he was talking about because of the star in the front door, 12 windows are visible, and that is not counting however many there are on the unseen side of the house.

Cara Harding: Do you ever have emotions that you can't explain? Have you ever lost control of these emotions? Do these emotions have a name? These were the first three questions that Dr. Malison asked of Joesph Kinkirk, just six hours after his arrest. To which Kinkirk answered: yes, yes, and Henry.

Plays like Ring without a video tape.
4 April 2010 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

It's really rare for an American film to open in Japan before America, so I rushed to see it. Well, I might not have rushed had it not been for Juliana Moore who does deliver despite huge gaping plot holes littered throughout the film.

I won't give anything away about the story. There is a lot of development in the first half of the movie which might make the film seem s l o w for some viewers. When the mystery is revealed it is surprising but even given the careful buildup you might still have to make an effort to suspend your disbelief if only because of the plot holes (which I can not mention with out enumerating spoilers).

There are quite a few logical disconnects, too. In a age of cell phones when you're a busy psychiatrist why would you drive across town to do something which would take ten seconds by phone? Because it's a plot device.

Still, I enjoyed the film. I can not recommend it to my Japanese friends as there is a lot of talk about God and Faith which is lost on a truly secular country; but I can recommend it to people who like films like The Ring or The Exorcist. There are some interesting characters and a lot of good acting especially by the male lead who, well, you'll see.
