Caleb's last name is Danvers. Danvers is the name of a city in northeastern Massachusetts, only ten miles from Ipswich, where this movie is set. Danvers is also the modern name of "Salem Village," the real center of the so-called Salem witch hysteria of 1692-93, which also included Ipswich. See more »

When the doctor is talking about what is wrong with Kate, he says "It's like she was bitten by hundreds of insects, like spiders." Spiders aren't insects and a medical doctor should know that. See more »

Great popcorn flick!
7 September 2006 | by (Durham, NC USA) – See all my reviews

Just came back from an advanced screening tonight.

No, this isn't going to win any awards. It didn't 'reinvent the genre'. It is just a very well made horror/action film.

Renny Harlin has taken a bunch of unknowns, a small budget, and has made a great looking film with some nicely fleshed out characters, nice fight scenes, some decent scares, and some VERY impressive special effects.

What really impressed me most of all was the tender love story between the teenage couple. When was the last time you saw a film where teenagers were in love and they just kissed, smiled and said goodnight? it was so sweet and innocent - far from the graphic bump and grind of most of today's film. I suppose the PG-13 was partly responsible for that - and if so, then bring on more PG-13 teenage films!

Don't let the PG-13 put you off. This is a very good film that anyone should enjoy...even adults like me : )

If you have seen the trailer and liked it, then I think you will like the film. I had a great time tonight and will get this when it comes out on DVD..
