* CulturalTranslation
* DarkSecret: [[spoiler: The killer ghost wasn't of the mother of the two girls, it was the older sister.]]

* TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive: Remove the battery from your phone? The call will still get through. Cancel your cell phone service and ''break the processor chips'' in your phone? It'll still ring.
