It was a sad attempt at a "surprise" ending that wound up as a FAIL. I want my money and that 1 1/2 of my life back.

Edited to Add: The worse part is I could have seen "Slumdog Millionaire" but my DD wasn't interested. Now, she wants to see it. ARRRGGGGHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

The girl was schizophrenic. The entire time she was home from the hospital she was having audio and visual hallucinations - I don't know how more elaborate you want the explanation to be - but hopefully someone who's seen it more recently than I have can explain more!

I just remember not liking it because I always hope for happy endings and it was definitely not one :(

really? i thought the ending was pretty happy?... she graduated valedictorian of her class, got the guy, and rode away in a fancy limo? i didnt see anything bad come out of the end at all, which is why i didnt understand the end at all. if the "Dark ones" were going to come and take her away and omg.. its soo scary, then why was it all fine and dandy at the end. i just didnt understand the end. i mean... that skitzo thing would have made more sense as to why her end was happy, if they said that she was skitzo and then said she was cured. but infact - her father was the one who went into the psych ward - not her... soo.. idk, i just dont understand what the point of the entire movie was if she was just going to get everything she wanted in the end.

She wasn't "taken away", she was "taken over". Now, she is the evil. Kinda like Damien from The Omen. I think we're supposed to find out the rest in the sequel. Gawd Forbid a sequel.:barf:
