The camera that the officer, played by Casper Van Dien, is using to examine the house is a Canon model 7D - a cropped-frame DSLR popular with sports and bird photographers. See more »
At the beginning of the movie, when Annie first stays over at her mom's house. She picks up a fallen jar of pickles in the kitchen, at the first shot you can see her putting the lid back on the jar, but in the second shot the lid is of the jar en she puts it next to the jar on the counter.

A Low Budget Horror movie, but with out the cheese!
It's a low budget horror movie, but not cheesy in the least. There is no cheesy fake blood and gore, no sex crazed teenagers, and no topples bubble headed blond's running from a psycho killer.
No cheap thrills here, just a very complex and layered plot with plenty of twist and turns. The movie never once lost my attention nor did I ever get lost in the plot. The movie moved slow enough to build likable characters and to build up suspense, but also wasn't so slow that it lost my interest.
I loved watching Annie as she went through the motions of loss and anger and then fear, and then ultimately the courage to discover clues and dig up old family secrets.
