** Also, Ivy doesn't know that Noah is dead, let alone that she killed him. She may still believe she was accosted by an actual monster.

** The film's twist ending renders most of the suspense completely pointless, [[ShockingSwerve since it completely removes the supernatural elements]]. Arguably, it would have been far more interesting had [[spoiler: "Those We Don't Speak Of" [[YourMindMakesItReal become real as a result of the Villagers' belief]], which would have been more in tone with the rest of the film. Imagine the OhCrap moment if it instead ended with all of them slowly walking out of the forest, furious that the Villagers had broken the Truce?]]

** Alternately, "Those We Don't Speak Of" get revealed and replaced by outside criminals, who'd love to have such a sanctuary.

* DorkAge: Despite its financial success, many see it as the point where Shyamalan's nigh-unstoppable rising stardom began to slip, with its infamous TwistEnding being the first of several to undermine Shyamalan's trademark directing style.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: The Elders. They allowed plenty of people to die from illnesses and other things that could have been solved [[spoiler: with modern medicine. All because they think the {{Arcadia}} they're preserving is better than the modern world. Mr Walker to boot sends his blind daughter through the woods rather than going himself.]] That's not to mention that Mr Walker allowed his teenage daughter to ''go blind'' when medicine could have saved her.

** Carrying on from the ''Film/JurassicWorld'' comparison, there's a scene in the film where Those We Don't Speak Of are in the village and Ivy takes two children aside to comfort them. A RunningGag in ''Jurassic World'' is how Bryce Dallas Howard's character is not maternal at all.



* RewatchBonus: Once you know the twist, watch the dialogue between the Elders. [[spoiler: They speak in archaic phrases like actors in a play, which makes perfect sense since this way of speaking is unnatural to them. The children meanwhile - Ivy, Lucius, Kitty etc - speak much more naturally.]]

** The creatures coming during the wedding. [[spoiler: The whole village was there, making it easy for one of the elders to do about their business without being seen]].

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Say what you will about the story, but Ivy was a cool character and Bryce Dallas Howard knocked it out of the park performance-wise.

* EsotericHappyEnding: [[spoiler: Ivy returns with medicine for Lucius who will probably make a full recovery. But Ivy has just learned that she's been lied to her whole life. The Elders are going to cover up Noah's death to continue their lie. This is presented as happy or bittersweet, rather than horrifying.]]
