When Rachel is preparing to do her architecture story, she is looking a newspaper clipping with a picture of the Sullivan House. The clipping is folded, but you can clearly see the headline of the story for the picture reads "Massacre at Fillmore." Later they act surprised to find the same unfolded clipping and read the story.

Forget The Devils Rejects- This ones actually Scary!!!
Well finally here's a good use of genre talent (Sid Haig, Bill Moseley, Leslie Easterbrook) put to a true horror film with a dark atmospheric story to match. It's basically a ghost story/slasher film that combines the genres seamlessly with a twist that comes at the end that left me at the edge of my seat. I'd say this is Moseley's best performance since Texas Chainsaw Massacre II and Haig and Leslie deliver some solid perfs as well. If you liked the Devils Rejects check this out as you won't be disappointed. This could be the best ghost story of the year (theatrical or direct-to-video). Its like a J- Horror film done right with the slasher element. Keep them coming Feifer!!!
