Trivia:
During the shooting of this film, actors Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz fell in love and started a relationship, which was publicly announced months later. The actress later married Craig in a discreet ceremony. When asked about the movie, Craig said "The movie didn't turn out great. But I met my wife. Fair trade".See more »
Goofs:
Incorrectly regarded as goofs: In the diner where Will is asking the police officers about the murders, the front shot of the officers is flipped as indicated by the text on the menu in the background as well as the seating of the officers switching between shots. That's because it's being seen through the mirror behind the counter at the diner.See more »
Quotes:
Chloe Patterson:Mom says you see them.

Huge Potential, Huge Disappointment, 30 September 2011
Author: jean0519 from United States

Will Atenton moves into a dream home with his lovely wife and two precious children. Weird things start to happen and the family discovers an ugly secret about their house. Neighbors are acting strange, the local police are no help, and investigating the house's history begins to unravel the family, and gives way to other supernatural dimensions.

This movie could have been a terrific ghost story in the vein of Shutter Island, The Others, or The Sixth Sense. Instead it loses focus and turns left into a formulaic and somewhat random "whodunnit". More like "who cares?". About halfway through it got boring and stupid and illogical. What a waste of Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz, and a totally underused Naomi Watts. Recut and re-release it. There's a really good movie in there somewhere.
