Director Richard LaGravenese wanted as little green screen as possible. In the Caster holiday dinner sequence, the set was built so that the table would spin with the actors on bolted chairs. The floor beneath the table would also spin, in the opposite direction, with Alice Englert and Emmy Rossum strapped to "parade float" stands. The entire set was built on hydraulics so it could be rocked. On a speed scale of 1 to 10, the actors are spinning at an 8. The sequence took three days to shoot. LaGravenese, a victim of motion sickness, took Dramamine to direct it. See more »
The matter of the script changing might not be a goof. Lena's power might change the script unconsciously in her presence. See more »
What I can't figure is, you go to church everyday, how do you believe in all of this and still believe in God?
God created all things didn't he? Only man will decide which ones is mistakes.

Predictable story but a lot more fun than Twilight.
Although there are some elements of twilight in the story. I found it to be a much better viewing experience. I was definitely surprised by how good it was. I may be biased because I like fantasy films a lot. Nevertheless, in some areas it was a little slow, especially at the beginning, but it does pick as the story continues.
Typical fantasy romance film plot, but it is fun to watch.I liked the fact that the story occurred in an isolated town and the rest of the world being completely oblivious to the existence of witches. Personally it made me feel as if something like this, no matter how absurd, could actually be happening.
Note- this is my first ever review and it is rushed, so be nice.
