Goofs

In all phone calls Rachel makes, the ringing sound of all the calls is a foreign long ring in equidistant intervals. This is used in many parts of the world and the particular 'note' of the sound is mainly an American tone. British phone ring-tones are sequences of two tone/pulses and therefore completely different. All the people Rachel calls are in Britain. See more »

Quotes

Rachel Carlson: Why is it everyone paints their boats the exact same color as their houses?
Angus McCulloch: Well, that's actually a tradition here. The wife needs to be able to look out on the water and know her husband's okay.
Rachel Carlson: That's very romantic.
Angus McCulloch: And we also get a tax-break on the paint, which is also very romantic.

Distraught author seeks solace over son's death on remote Scottish seacoast. Things are not as they seem!
5 February 2006 | by adridSee all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie a lot since I love horror/mystery/thriller/ghost stories. However, I would put this in the category of ghost story/love story. I think Demi was Demi - not great, but good. I thought it was interesting that they have her coupled with someone almost 20 years younger than she is, just like her real life. I do question some of the scenery. The village looks authentic Scottish with plaster and stone houses. However, the cottage, looks pure Appalacian mountain cabin - certainly not able to withstand hard weather in that part of the British Isles. Also, the lighthouse looks more USA than Scotland. The rest of the scenery looked genuine. I loved the musical score and the GREAT twist at the end. It really leaves you wondering about some things, and that's why I watched it again the next day. I do recommend this movie! I wish it had been based on a novel so I could clear up some questions I still have.
