Constantine picture

Question: Even though Isabel committed suicide, shouldn't she have gone to heaven? She willfully sacrificed herself to insure that Mammon couldn't cross on to earth so in a way, she was saving billions of people, so that should have guaranteed her entry into heaven.

Answer: Sin for a good reason is still sin, and as Gabriel says earlier, you can't buy your way into Heaven. Real Catholic dogma, however, doesn't hold the mentally ill as condemned for committing suicide.

Question: I was really confused by the ending, who were the three figures we kept seeing, and what were they trying to do?

Chosen answer: The figures are spirits who figured out how to contact the living, like Michael Keaton's wife. But where his wife wants him to help others, the three spirits are evil and want to only do bad things.

Question: What was the point in Rachel jumping off the cliff?

Chosen answer: It was the only way out. She followed Aiden's voice to the cliff and kept hearing it from the same direction. She knew she had to jump off to get back to the real world.

Question: Was the mother (the drunk lady that picked up Natasha and the one that was throwing up in the toilet in 10F in the dream) Dahlia's mother or Natasha's mother? Which one was imagining it?

Chosen answer: The drunk woman in the begining of the movie was Dahlia's mother. (Remember, the husband was going to say that Dahlia was unstable because she had an abusive father and an alcoholic mother) That was a flashback. Dahlia was dreaming when she saw herself throwing up in the toilet.

The Skeleton Key picture

Question: What was the deal with the mirrors? Are there spirits in the mirrors? Or can Violet (or whoever's body happens to be inhabited) see her "true self" in the mirror? When Caroline first spends the night, a figure, like Mama Cecile, can be seen in her little mirror. If the spirit is in the body (Violet's), why would it be wandering around? So, the mirrors expose their true identity, correct?

Boogeyman picture

Question: In the preview for this movie, there is chanting in the background of something that ends with 'When you see him count to five, pray that you will stay alive.' What, if anything, is this?

Chosen answer: This is a made up children's rhyme just like the "Nightmare on Elm Street" series has "One, two, Freddy's coming for you, three, four, better lock the door,..."

Cursed picture

Question: How come Joanie became a werewolf before Ellie and Jimmy? I thought she got bitten before them.

Brad Premium member

Chosen answer: Joanine made a crack saying "I guess there is no real way to have safe sex with a werewolf. Joanine dated Jake before Ellie, hence how she became a werewolf before Ellie and Jimmy. In fact it was Joanie who made Ellie and Jimmy werewolves because she stated she was killing the other girls Jake was interested in.

The Amityville Horror picture

Question: Probably it's for dramatic impact, but it seemed strange that Ryan Reynolds' character would rush out to the boathouse on seeing the red balloon. It would have made more sense to check her room first, but he leaves (and even dives into the icy lake) without telling anyone. If it was out and out panic, wouldn't he wake his wife? Apart from as a plot device, any ideas why?

Chosen answer: He sees the balloon, and instantly assumes his step-daughter is inside the boat house, and hence is in danger of slipping and drowning (or perhaps already in such a situation). He rushes straight out to get there as quickly as possible. Checking her room, or telling his wife would take up time, not to mention he is probably running on adrenaline.

House of Wax picture

Question: Two of the main characters are called Wade and Dalton, is there a connection to the 1989 Patrick Swayze film Road House?

Chosen answer: I don't think so. Wade and Dalton aren't exactly uncommon names and references to other movies are usually more obvious than two characters sharing names.

Doom picture

Question: What exactly happened to Reaper's parents? I didn't get much from the flashback, and it's almost never mentioned.

Chosen answer: They died in a cave in, in the archaeological dig area. Or at least that's what I got.

Hellraiser: Deader picture

Question: How come only a select few people are supposed to be able to open the box (the ritual leader not being one of them) but it managed to open just by Amy throwing it across the room at the end? In the past movies also, anyone who gets their hands on the cube seem to have little or no trouble opening it.

Chosen answer: There is no logical answer to this. This should just be added to the mistake section.

Hellraiser: Hellworld picture

Question: Are open-throated Allison and the mutilated dark-haired guy near the end chasing Chelsey supposed to have become cenobites? Because they seem to be animated after death like the cenobites but they aren't wearing the usual leather gear and apart from their mutilations they look otherwise human.

Chosen answer: No they are not. They are just a figment of Chelsey's imagination as Lance Henrickson's character points out he put all of everything they saw in their mind, including Pinhead.

Land of the Dead picture

Question: Is there going to be a sequel to this movie? I checked IMDB and didn't find anything, I'm just trying to get more confirmation.

Sir William

Hostel picture

Question: At the very end of the movie, just before the credits stop rolling, we hear Natalya's line, "I get a lot of money for you, and that makes you *my* bitch". Sounds to me like a filmmaker's joke on the audience (meaning, he's making money 'cause people are watching his picture). Does anyone know what this really was intended to mean? Any official words about it from Eli Roth or his crew?

Chosen answer: This is actually a reference to both Eli Roth and Quentin Tarantino's experience with the same hooker. After both Tarantino and Roth "had" the same call girl without either of them knowing, the hooker replied to both of them as she left their separate rooms, "I get a lot of money for you, and that makes you MY bitch. Hence, the opening line for the trailer. Both of them had a big laugh during the premiere.

Return of the Living Dead: Rave to the Grave picture

Question: I am having trouble finding this online. Although the 3 main characters are from the 4th movie with the same names, the main guy is upset that his uncle died, even though he tried to kill him and his friends in the prior movie. They all act like this is all new to them. My question is, does this follow the events from the prior movie and they are aware of those events, or is this just paying homage to the 1st and 2nd movie where Frank and Freddy were killed off but returned as different, although similar, characters?

lartaker1975

Answer: This movie is actually off task like the fourth film. Both 4 and Rave to the grave feature zombies that are supposed to be indestructible like in the first three films, but are not indestructible and the only people aware of the chemical's nature are the main characters, police, and military from the first film and the main characters and military from the second and third films. So although the fourth and fifth installments in the franchise are sequels to the previous films, they aren't really connected with the three installments as the fourth installment takes place in the future and the fifth installment takes time somewhere between the third and fourth film and the chemical's effects are shown to have changed after the third film.
