Goofs

While the son is at a party, he is seen smoking a water pipe (bong). This bong has multiple issues. The chamber is already filled with smoke as he lights it. His finger is nowhere near the usual location of the 'carb'. As he inhales, the smoke doesn't leave the tube into his lungs. We hear a bubbling sound (and see the water bubbling) AFTER the bowl has been removed. The bubbling sound happens while the user is lighting and inhaling to fill the chamber with smoke. We should have only heard an inhaling sound at that point. See more »

Quotes

Annie: It's heartening to see so many strange, new faces here today. I know my mom would be very touched, and probably a little suspicious.

Great slow burn uncomfortable horror
31 August 2018 | by mills71See all my reviews

Loved this movie, it wasn't hard to figure out once it peaked .. but getting there was great. I see people don't like this film and I can understand that. But it reminded me of Rosemary's Baby and that's saying a lot. As the story unfolds you see how truly horrifying this persons (Toni Collette) life has been.. the performances are spot on. This movie really ramps up in the last twenty minutes.. it's not fir everyone but it creeped me out and I watch a lot of horror. Give it a shot .. it's well worth it.
