The Orphanage

Continuity mistake: The amount of sacks by the oven that Laura moves away keeps increasing and decreasing randomly all the time.

Continuity mistake: When the medium leaves the bedroom following the first countdown, she turns right out of the room, but then 'backtracks' on herself, passing the room she had just left (you can see the chair she was sitting on in the background). However, Enrique, on his house plan, marks her walking in the direction she first took (right) and not as if she had turned left out of the room.

Revealing mistake: When Laura falls in the bathtub, a stunt is doing the fall, because her hair colour and style changes.

Laura: 1, 2, 3. Toca la pared.

Aurora: Seeing is not believing. It's the other way around. Believe, and you will see.


Question: The game they play near the start (the knock on wood game) seems pretty interesting. Is the point of it not to get caught moving or is there another goal? Also, can someone help me with the Spanish translation? I can't hear what the Spanish for Knock on Wood is. Thanks.

Chosen answer: It's a Spanish version of Red Light, Green Light where you'd try not to get caught moving. I haven't watched the film in a while but I believe she says "Uno, dos, tres, toca la pared". Hope that helps!

Question: Was the child with the sack over his head, who attacked the mother and locked her in the bathroom, Simon or one of the children (ghosts)?

Chosen answer: It was Simon. He had found the mask in Thomas' little house and attacked her while wearing it because he was angry she had fought with him. We know it is him as the boy in the mask is wearing Simon's shoes, and later on when Simon is found he is wearing the mask.
