  • After Julia sees the mark on the little girl's arm Dr. Booth comes into the waiting room to find her gone. She's at a hardware store instead buying various lighting supplies. The cashier asks Julia "Going camping?" and she doesn't reply.
  • Before Julia leaves for Billy's funeral she is shown in her bedroom packing. Paul makes breakfast for her and the two have an intimate moment before she leaves.
  • After Julia removes the object from her scalp she runs to Sam's apartment. As Sam is being attacked Julia is shown running through the city. She enters the building and calls out "Sam!" twice. The second time he hears her and yells back "Julia?," but he is pulled underneath the elevator. She calls out his name twice more and his body is thrown through a window and it lands on top of her. A monster on his back growls at Julia and pulls Sam's corpse into the darkness.

User Reviews

Even though a lot of people hate this film I very much enjoyed it
3 July 2003 | by badgirlkaneSee all my reviews

They isn't a horror film for fans of horror who like gratitious gore and is more of a plot-thought provoking film where if you ever did suffer from the mental disorder known as Night Terrors as i did as a young child then this movie will strike a chord within you and leave chills running up and down your spine. If you never had horrific nightmares as a kid then it probably won't do much for you as the acting really isn't that great and I really didn't feel that sympathetic towards any of the adult charachters once They got them. They afterwards spooked the living crap out of me as for several weeks now I've had to close my closet door before i go to sleep as I have visions of the very well executed They monsters in the back of my mind.Definatley rent the DVD as the alternate ending offers more of an explanation as to what They is but it also takes away from the horror movie aspect of the film and makes it a film in just psychlogical terror instead. *** out of *****
