Creating this "ghost room" was one of many terrifying tricks tackled by boutique FX house Asylum's Marc Varisco. Rather than simply superimpose one environment over another, Varisco opted for layering multiple worlds by creating visual "pockets" that displayed creepy basement detritus and empty picture frames, surrounded by the remnants of Sydney's bedroom wallpaper. "We shot the floor and walls of Sydney's penthouse apartment bedroom, then shot similar angles and camera moves on the dead girl's room and the basement sets," Varisco explains. "Seeing the effect from outside her point of view was more disturbing," Varisco says. "Either she's going crazy, or she's really seeing this stuff."
