The film is set in Virginia and while most elements are factual, such as the state seal in the librarian's ID badge, all cars in Virginia have a State Inspection Sticker on the center of the windshield. This is missing on all cars in the film. See more »

I really liked this movie and the concept for it was original. I think this film makes the viewer think about what the characteristics are of being a mother. What sort of instincts we as woman can display and what kind of connections can be made with a child, even if you're a terrifying ghost.
Del Toro will always put his name on a good thriller surrounding small children. This movie had all the thrills of a scary movie and the elements fright used in the film had everyone in my theater on the edge of the seat. The movie waist no time getting into the meat of the story.
There are flaws in the film and it does have to do with plot holes. The director could have worked these holes out with other writers......like Del Toro perhaps. The back story had the hugest gap of all.
Regardless, it was better than 'Don't be Afraid of the Dark', and I will be seeing this film again.
