Not normally interested in genre films, Keri Russell was attracted to the project because of its depiction of a mother fighting for her family. See more »
"A.C.E." is listed after cinematographer David Boyd's name in the opening credits. This stands for American Cinema Editors, of which he is not a member (he also isn't even a film editor). The correct letters to use would have been "A.S.C." for American Society of Cinematographers, of which he is a member. See more »

I have to admit i'm very surprised with this movie, also i'm surprised that its getting low ratings, i guess crap like paranormal activity is whats popular around... Anyway, this is by far the most scary movie in the last 10 years, i could dare anyone to name another movie that can deliver the scare in a better way than this?... yes there are a LOT of clichés, but they are so well done, that it doesn't matter.. Also the acting is simply TOP-notch, which adds so much to the plot... Im a big fan of mashup genres, and this is a great mixture of sci-fi and horror, it takes elements from many other movies, which is not a bad thing at all... The ending leads (hopefully) to a sequel, i really think it deserves one...
