Trivia

The interception of the wireless transmission and the fake horoscopes handed out in class are taken from James Randi's actual work of exposing frauds. See more »

Goofs

At the beginning of the movie you hear a car driving with the gears changing on a manual transmission. However, when the car appears, it is a car that was never manufactured with a manual transmission. The car zooms down the road in the same scene with, again, the wrong automobile sounds. See more »

Crazy Credits

At the end of the ending credits, the film's title flickers in a similar manner to the way light bulbs behave in the presence of psychic activity throughout the film. See more »

One trick pony
22 September 2012 | by joshua-303-92778See all my reviews

Surprisingly little actually happens in this movie, which Sigorney Weaver and Robert DeNiro presumably made for an easy paycheck. No one would confuse this with an Oscar contender.

I won't spoil the ending in this review. Actually, there's rather little to spoil. The movie plods along with tense music until literally the very end, when the great secret is finally revealed.

Visually, there's some nice design in the film. The acting isn't bad, but there's no real memorable performances either.

Watch this if you have nothing else to do.

Anyway, that's it. This is just an extra line to meet IMDb's criteria :-)
