The original ending to the film featured a young couple being shown around the apartment after Mary has moved. The final shot focused on the telephone ringing ominously. The ending that was eventually used was actually to be the second-to-last scene in the film. See more »
I am glad to say that this movie has restored my faith in the Thriller genre. Being a science fiction and thriller/horror fan, I have to say I was doubly entertained (and, truth be told, a little surprised).
The stunning Rachelle Lefevre was a true exponent of her craft, and I was thoroughly engaged with her character. I felt her fear and frustration as the plot unfolded and I even found myself literally on the edge of my seat by the end.
This is one of the best written and executed films on the theme of Time Paradox that I have seen. Many have tackled the subject either to come up with exhaustively complex story lines that leave the audience utterly confused or with completely inane and laughable plots that insult our collective intelligence.
This title to its credit, however, unapologetically adopts a simple yet scientifically sound (or sounding) premise and sticks with it throughout.
I highly recommend this movie to all and sundry who are looking for smart, thrilling, and scary ride into paranormal.
