Overview

This is primarily a horror movie, but does portray a number of Psychological Themes. There are two main characters in the movie, i.e. a father (Dr. David Callaway, a Psychologist) and his daughter (Emily). Following the apparent suicide of her mother, Emily shows a number of trauma related symptoms. Dr Callaway seems to be a well-functioning professional person who shows genuine concern for his daughter, but all is not as it seems…

Without giving the plot away, the discussion will cover the following themes:
