* NeverTrustATrailer: The trailers give the impression the film is a supernatural horror about a Slenderman-like entity who kidnaps children, with the main protagonist investigating after her own son is snatched. [[spoiler: It's actually a far more mundane thriller about a secret organisation who kidnaps children from abusive and/or impoverished families and gives to them families who will look after them; the protagonist is a member of said organisation and her 'son' is actually a boy she has kidnapped, whose mother was trying to take him back]].

The film is known for bearing some similarities to TheSlenderManMythos, with a tall shady figure who gets connected to the strange disappearances of children. That's about as similar as it gets, as the reality is [[TwistEnding much different]].
