(At around 1h 1 min) When Carl use his dice in Crane's house, one of the answers is "no". Under the N and the O, the letters G and K appear, respectively, but in the close-up shot, the letters are I and K (on the other side of the dice), with both dice in different positions. See more »
The only thing really scary about this movie is that people seem to have loved it. Compared to screen gems as The Exorcist, The Entity( with B. Hershey too ), The Omen, Scanners, The Thing, Rec, The Haunting, Dawn of the Dead, Night of the Living Dead, it has absolutely nothing to offer : no characters, no atmosphere at all ( fumes ARE NOT atmosphere ), very bad storytelling, mediocre acting, a very messy story, and terrible wanna be fun moments that have nothing to do in a movie supposed to scare you. The Conjuring was far better imho, avoid this one at all costs ! I wonder how much people have been paid to review this mess as "the movie that would stop the earth from spinning were it a bit scarier". By the way, stop putting à 10/10 from a movie that is "scary but not a great movie" ! Movies that deserve a 10/10 should be a handful at most and not some rubbish made to make money on behalf of no brainers under 18 who have seen at most a 100 film in their lives( "the best horror movie I have ever seen" ). Pathetic !
