Trivia

After the first paragraphs, the news reports that Alyson finds online become rambling fourth-wall-breaking plot speculation and chastise the reader for getting that far. See more »

Goofs

Various newspaper clippings are shown throughout the movie, with some humorous text. A clipping from "The Herald" contains "Speaking of Central American folklore, why are you still reading this? Don't you have something more important to be doing? If I had a dollar for every time..." An online article contains the text: "Not a stolen care. Stolen cat. Stolen child. Other words that begin with c. [...] I really hope you aren't still reading this article because I dont have any more information to provide you. Some people died and we don't know who did it. I mean, the crazy kid with the doll probably did it, but no one wants to call a crazy child a murderer. So here we are, not pointing fingers at the kid found with a knife and blood all over him. Definitely not him. Couldn't be." And another online article ends with: "Police are the and if I just knew you'd while a bit. But really? Really? If you so much got in to the car. I don't. He don't. You is greeting. Season. It was too much. Too little? I is you have just one, just one he. If now, you is for the best. happiness? Sadness? It was the best of times it was the worst of times. If you so much as whisper, I said you're gonna. For the love of cats, what the man." See more »

Finders Keepers
12 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Woman buys house then realises it is haunted. Or something is. She has a child, in this case a daughter, but if you've seen a similar offering in which the woman has a son or the man has a son, or there is a family or a whole bunch of them, you might be forgiven for experiencing a sense of déjà vu. Guess what comes next, and you get only the one guess. Of course, murders, lots of them!

There is no secret about the root of the evil as from the off we are made aware of the reason the house is haunted, there had been a massacre there, one committed by a ten year old boy, who also murdered the two police officers who were sent to investigate the initial disturbance, or whatever it was.

Kylie Rogers who plays Claire was only 10 years old when this film was released. If her role does not constitute child abuse then an adult willingly sitting through 80+ minutes of this constitutes self-abuse (no, not in that sense, you reprobate). Indeed there is no sex to speak of in this film, not that a rape, an orgy or even a knee trembler could have made it appreciably worse.
