- Jossed, Shaun San Dena clearly reacts to the Lamia grabbing Juan and dragging him to Hell.
- I wholeheartedly agree. Well, at least in regards to Sylvia. If you condemn someone to Hell just because they're foreclosing on your home after REPEATED warnings, then you're pretty much damned as well. I hope Christine makes Sylvia's eternity AWFUL.
- Related to Hell Girl WMG above, it is possible that Ganush family actually formed the in-universe counterpart of "Hell Correspondence" with Lamia. This gives them power to curse anybody who wronged them, at the price of their own damnation after death.
Just let me have my Bittersweet Ending.
- This is what happens. No one can tell me otherwise.
- This troper agrees with you, 100%. Deity would never let the non-evil go to Hell.
- Maybe the way curse's magic (or at least its final stage) is actually just an induced illusion of hell, meant to mentally torment the victims.
- Or, if not an illusion, the way they are killed. We see them being physically dragged to Hell (and surviving/melting) but the moment they arrive there, God takes their soul (no way a twelve year old kid would spend even a second there). It is a terrible death, yes, but that's all it is. The Ganush clan has no idea of this and the demon will never tell them: Lamia probably hopes the victim of the curse will do something sinful to get out of it (such as condemning another innocent soul to save themselves) and, meanwhile, Lamia gets the souls of those who make use of the curse.
Complete with the Hope Spot that allows our heroine to take a moment to catch her death, is enforced by a cruel Chekhov's Gun reveal, causing a female Heroic BSoD, after which the female is Eaten Alive, dismemembered, grasps for the sun, and is punished fatally for trying to stay alive.
- The events of the movie take place some time before the UAC began experimenting with interdimensional portals. At this point the demons can be summoned through cursed objects and can take individual souls, but it isn't until the portals begin opening that the demons become able take physical forms in our dimension and slaughter people en masse.
This is already mentioned on this page's headscratchers. Evidence is a scene where Christine spurts half a pint of blood from her nose and her boss doesn't care much. At the end, she does in fact die, but it's by being hit by a train and not being dragged to Hell.
- The very obvious issue with that theory is that the opening scene happens years before the movie and shows another victim of the Lamia being dragged to hell.
- It's all in his head too?
