* EsotericHappyEnding: Or a BittersweetEnding, or a DownerEnding, depending on your views. [[spoiler:Grace killed her children, and they are all presumably forced to dwell in the house forever, separated from their husband/father and with no indication that there's a higher power looking after them. However, they have resolved most of their internal strife, the children are no longer harmed by the light, and Mrs Mills' general demeanour suggests that being dead isn't really all that bad. Grace even manages a small, grateful smile when she offers to get her a cup of tea]].

** Anne is a bratty little thing as well but it's hard not to feel some pity for her when she's frequently at odds with Grace. Especially the "you're not my daughter!" scene - where Anne is very good at looking like a kicked puppy.

** If you watch the film again after learning that [[spoiler:Grace and her children were DeadAllAlong, you'll notice how alot of the things they do are common with what people usually associate ghosts with (erratically moving things, wearing creepy clothing, talking/making noises in acoustic hallways/rooms, not leaving their home etc.)]]
** Charles's reaction when he first sees Grace. [[spoiler: Well how would you react if you discovered your wife and children were also dead]]?
** There's a point in the movie where Grace kisses her children while they're asleep. Anne in particular looks extremely pale and lifeless. [[spoiler: Now it's {{Foreshadowing}} that she's a ghost]].

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: It's entirely possible that Grace already knew about [[spoiler: her husband's death in the war]] but was in denial about it, and the knowledge that [[spoiler: he wouldn't be coming home]] is what drove her mad in the first place.
