In the first scene when the car is driving up to the house when they are bringing Hunter home for the first time, as the car pulls into the driveway, you can see Kristi sitting in the back seat on the passenger side, and you can see the handle of the baby carrier in the back seat on the driver's side. In the next shot where Daniel is taking the baby out of the car, the car seat is now clearly on the passenger side of the vehicle. See more »

To some this will be a slow and boring film, with a few choice moments. It is mostly tension. It forces you to bring the fear yourself. Long, wide shots of large rooms, make sure you are searching each frame for something out of place or abnormal. Your mind may even play tricks on you at times. In contrast to the first film, this was a little better. The main problem I had with the original was the fact that one of the protagonists was completely unlikable. Here we have a close family, and for the most part, people don't act THAT stupid. The real star is the dog, coming off as a protective guardian, and honestly able to act scared and brave almost at the same time. There are some brilliant sections, but it never goes far enough. A third film seems to be on its way, but will it run out of steam?
