(at around 57 mins) During the family dinner scene, Peter's meal keeps persistently changing in every single shot, there are times the meat changes angles, flips over, is hanging different ways. See more »
I rank this as the best horror movie I've seen. It's such a delicately made movie, where psychological terror is used in a smart manner. It's not jump scares, but rather a heavy uneasy feeling, that terrifies you for two straight hours. Everyone in the cinema sat on the edge of their seats every second - you rarely felt safe, as you can during daytime in other, sloppy horror flicks.
The acting is superb, especially Toni Collette, who performs her lifetime role as a mother coping with tragic loss. If you want to be scared out of your wits, while watching an elegant movie with beautiful cinematography, this one's for you.
