When a dog suddenly appears and is eventually befriended by Ben, it follows him around presumably leaving paw-prints all over the place (particularly since it was often raining), yet later when Ben is told by the manager of the psychiatric institute that there couldn't have been any dog because animals were not permitted, all Ben would have had to do was to calculatingly arrange for the manager to see some of the paw-prints, thereby exposing the lie.

Daddy, what's the greatest thing you ever saw?
Greatest thing you ever saw. Umm. One time when I was a little boy, I was playing with my slingshot and I saw this Jaybird. I don't know why but I shot him.
You killed a birdie?
I didn't mean to. I don't even know why I shot at him, but I felt so bad, I started praying to God that he would come back. And all of a sudden the Jaybird woke up. He just flew away.
God saved him?
Yeah, I think so.

Decent low budget thriller that somewhat resembles Dennis Lehane's Shutter Island, of which a movie is also being made soon. Frankly, I'd rather watch that, but this is alright. There's nothing really gripping here, but the movie keeps your interest all the way through - albeit at times at the false assumption that it's building up to something truly horrifying, which it never does. But it's still quite interesting and you can tell they were really trying to make a good movie. They almost succeeded, if not for the truly wretched dialogue between the main character and this lady he meets. Good god, have these people EVER talked to a girl in their lives? In fact, all of the dialogue is pretty damn mediocre; you can tell the same person wrote it all because every character speaks the same way!
Oh well, aside from that, this movie is alright.
