Trivia
[1] Continuity error - During a conversation by the fire with the Mrs. Mills, Grace's wristwatch appears, disappears and appears again
[2] Continuity error - When Grace asks Anne about the "ghosts" who are running in the house, she puts her hands on Anne's head but in the next shot Grace's hands are on Anne's neck
[3] Continuity error - While walking in the fog, Grace's hands are very red from the cold when she puts them on her husband's neck. In the next shot they are much whiter, then back to red again
[4] The movie opens with Nicole, in voiceover, reading a story. She begins with the words, "...are you sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin." These were the opening words from the BBC radio programme "Listen With Mother", broadcast in the UK between 1950 and 1982.
[5] Nicole was nominated for 11 awards for this film, including a BAFTA, Golden Globe, London Critics Circle Award and a Goya.

Worth watching for...
... so many reasons. The 2nd of Nicole's 2 'breakout' performance in 2001, she really excels as Grace and brings her emotions to life. The film is Nicole's first 'horror/thriller' role, and she chose a good one - original and truely scary.
