* EarWorm: In-universe. Tom hears his son humming a song, and Tom becomes obsessed with figuring out what song it is: ''Paint It Black'' by Music/TheRollingStones, specifically a cover version by Gob. [[spoiler:The song was playing during the murder, and was the last thing the victim heard as she suffocated.]]

* AttemptedRape - What leads to the events in the movie that Tom has to relive through psychometry. * ChekhovsGun - Literal. Frank [=McCarthy=] makes an offhand remark about owning guns early in the movie. Do you think more than one gun will eventually play a narrative role? * EarWorm - In-universe. Tom hears his son humming a song, and Tom becomes obsessed with figuring out what song it is: ''Paint It Black'' by Music/TheRollingStones, specifically a cover version by Gob. [[spoiler:The song was playing during the murder, and was the last thing the victim heard as she suffocated.]] * GhostlyGoals - [[spoiler:entirely benign in this case: she just wants her corpse found and her murderer brought to justice.]] * ImaginaryFriend - Tom and Maggie mistake who Jake speaks to at first as one of these. It's a ghost. * OnlySaneMan - Maggie believes she's this, because she didn't develop any psychic sensitivities. * OurGhostsAreDifferent - The ghost was cleverer post-death than in life, and more direct than a lot of ghosts in other media. She communicated with Tom as clearly as she could, considering his low power psychic ability meant she couldn't literally talk to him as she did with his son. She even convinced his son to talk to her sister to make more connections... which [[FridgeLogic raises the question]] why she didn't just tell the kid all her woes directly. The only alternative being that she didn't want to involve him too much because of his age.

* SupernaturalProofFather - An aversion, as in this case, Dad and son get involved with the ghost, but Mom's the one LockedOutOfTheLoop.
