Susan is laying on the bed with one leg dangling over the edge, waiting for David to return from checking downstairs. You see her leg in the mirror, dangling, foot not touching the floor. The camera then goes to a close up, floor level, of a hand reaching for Susan's foot, which is now touching the floor. Right before the hand grabs her ankle the camera goes back out to show Susan and the mirror. The mirror clearly shows Susan's foot off the floor again with the hand around it. See more »
I didn't find this movie as slow-moving as most, but it WAS as pointless as they've written. At first the ending was marginally surprising until I thought about it for five seconds. The only reason it was surprising is because of the misdirection of the movie's first 10 minutes. Remove that and the lease ingenuous viewer will know what the deal is after about 30 minutes.
Very linear and predictable with extra characters that really do nothing to advance or even influence the story. It really could have been told with about five characters.
Very little was done to explain why the lead sees what she sees other than a few vague words from a medium, but even at that there is no explanation as to why she sees things now, but apparently never did the first 35 (or so) years of her life.
Still, it's decent enough for ambient viewing while loading a dishwasher or doing some paperwork. You've seen it enough times to not have to pay rapt attention, but it's not some obviously cheap, horribly acted flick that shoots entirely in day-for-night blue.
