The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising

Corrected entry: When the rider summons the cold, the window freezes. If window glass were to get that cold that fast it would shatter. The cold does manage to find it's way in and everyone's covered in frost and there are huge icicles in the house. First off, somebody would've woken up if they weren't dead already. Second, icicles need liquid water to grow and they don't grow in extreme cold. Also, even falling icicle's that large would likely injure but not kill someone (the ones that weren't controlled by magic). (01:17:20)


Correction: This entry nearly explains itself away: magic. The windows don't shatter because it's magic. The icicles form because it's magic. Frost grows on people without killing them because it's magic.

Corrected entry: Will is told that the dark cannot enter the Great Hall unless it's invited. Later, Will opens the door when the rider is faking his mom's voice and the rider comes in, however, just opening the door for someone does not make them a guest nor does it invite them in. (01:25:20)


Correction: This is purely opinion-based. You may not see it as an invite to open the door for someone, but many others would say that opening the door for someone who asks to be let in is the same as a spoken invitation. And apparently whoever placed the enchantments on the Hall thought so too.

Will Stanton: It's so... and ya know, and I'm like... this whole thing's just... arrr, you know.
Merriman Lyon: Is that it?



In the scene at the beginning of the film when the bus enters the village, you can see that the road signs are on the left side of the road (not facing the bus) and the continous line that separates the two ways is on the exit of the curve, not before the curve. This is because the action of the movie is set to happen in England but that scene was filmed in Romania, a country with right-hand traffic.
