I totally cried at this film.
All the things that would have made it scary - noises and voices and whatnot- just added to the sadness of her loss of sanity. The end where she dies to be with them is pretty lame, because it confirms all those happenings in the real world, not just her imagination. I can't decide whether I felt so sad just because I am so horrified by the idea of that happening, or cause of actual merits of the film and stuff. I think the little boy's personality had a lot to do with it; because he was so clever, it was almost as if this wasn't meant to happen to him because he should have got one up on everyone else...but yeah I'm choosing to ignore the final scene where they're all happy and dead because it makes no sense. It should have been tragic. But I guess you're meant to see it as that, since it ends from Carlos' perspective, a non-believer of all the supernatureal crap.
and its self-explanatory position beneath the broken bannister, as if someone neglected to clean it up. That was the most disturbing/unusual thing about it actually.
see this in the cinema. My girlfriend wept throughout the whole second half of the film. She says she has never seen anything so devastating. She knows her horror - this was something else.
cliche or whatever, but i hate scary children in films
Hated the ending too. I want to come out of a horror film quaking in my trainers, not feeling like ive been assaulted by the 'feelgood factor'. Grow some balls mr director.
not so good on a second viewing.
I thought it was silly.
