Interesting Easter Egg - just after the fire ritual scene, Marsden sees a demon on the balcony of the house. To the right of the demon is an oval window. And in that window a large human eye appears. It blinks open then vanishes - all in a few frames. That eye matches the close-up of the daughter's eye when she is on the surgery table in the hospital near the end of the movie. This seems to be a clue that the characters are somehow in the daughter's dream as she lies dying. As if all the characters are sharing a dream in a sense. See more »

Fascinating Metaphor for Mental Illness and Depression
I found this movie to be surprisingly deep. Not the same old horror thing at all. The rating should be higher but I guess IMDb skews to a younger demographic.
I won't give away any major spoilers. But if you really look closely at the last 30 minutes, you find that the movie you thought you were watching is really something else. It's all about how people can go through their waking lives in depression, while part of their minds (the subconscious) wrestles with inner demons. What we see on screen during most of movie is really that subconscious dream - people fighting literal demons. Their "real" lives are only revealed at the end. And by the end, they are cured of their depression from the hellish dream - yet they barely remember the dream at all.
At least that much seemed clear to me.
It's kind of like how you might go to bed feeling really bad. But then you wake up in the morning feeling fully refreshed. You remember having some kind of dream that night and maybe that dream was responsible for curing your bad feelings. But you can barely remember the dream.
We have also all heard stories of people living with mental illness their whole lives and then one day - poof! They are cured. And they don't even know how or why. Was part of their mind busy working things out on a different plane of reality?
