The movie has several fluctuated and suspenseful scenes. The real shock comes at the last phase of the movie when the audience got to know that Phil’s younger daughter is just a demonic appearance (doesn’t exist in real) that only Phil’s been witnessing from the beginning.

The director Stephan Rick tried to make the movie more horrific by giving Kilmer a more peculiar and mysterious look. Diverting the audience’s attention towards Kilmer as a prime suspect. Also the mystery behind the corrupt Building manager’s secret room. At the start, it seemed like Kilmer and the manager both are involved in all the scary activities. But the room turned out to be something else.
