Continuity mistake: In the scene where Ben knocks on "Sarah's" back door with the apples, the sides of her hair are up and it is evident that there are no visible bruises on her face. However, the next evening at dinner, "Sarah" has her hair down and after moving her hair, a large, fresh bruise is observed by Ben. If this bruise was present, it would have been seen the night before when "Sarah's" hair was 1/2 up.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the film when Julia discovers the cans are all in order, she runs for the front door and see the stereo set up there. Then the husband comes from behind. In the following scenes where she goes to the door to talk to Ben, the stereo is gone.
Continuity mistake: When Sarah/Laura first sees Ben singing and watering the lawn, the view from the inside of her bedroom shows that the room/wall extends quite a ways to her right. But from Ben's viewpoint outside, Sarah/Laura appears in a corner window, with no possible extension of the room/wall to her right anymore.
Trivia: The beach house is supposedly in Cape Cod, but was actually filmed in Wrightsville Beach, NC on Figure Eight island.
Laura: That was the night that I died, and someone else was saved. Someone who was afraid of water, but learned to swim. Someone who knew there would be one moment, where he wouldn't be watching. Someone who knew that the darkness of the broken lights would show the way.
Martin: We all forget things. That's what reminding is for.
Martin: I can't live without you. And I won't let you live without me.
Question: Was the doctor (the owner of the sailboat in the beginning) in on Laura's planned disappearance? Or was the bad weather just a coincidence and gave her the chance to escape? Just though it was weird because her husband commented that she only gets on a boat like once a year, so I don't know how she could have planned her escape so perfectly.
Question: When she discovers the cans are all in order, why doesn't she run out the back door which is right there? Why does she run to the front door?
