* DreamingTheTruth: There's a moment in the dream where Scottie flashes back to the moment after the inquest when Elster is talking to him except in the dream Elster is embracing Carlotta, hinting that Elster is a villain and Carlotta (or rather her story) is his accomplice. Scottie's conscious mind doesn't accept this however until much later when he spots Carlotta's necklace in the mirror towards the end.

* HalfwayPlotSwitch: The driving plot thread of first half of the film is the mystery behind Carlotta Valdes and whether or not Madoline is possessed by her. The second half of the film [[spoiler: (After Madoline's "death".)]] is centered around Scottie's obsession with Madoline and the lengths he'll go to in order to be with her again.
