For example, when Lucie coldly kills an entire family, we share Anna's scepticism over whether or not Lucie targeted the correct people, for beforehand they're shown to be completely ordinary people with a standard family dynamic that gives us the false impression that such people could never be capable of such systematic and cold torture, that is methodically applied against children, yet when Anna shockingly discovers a torture chamber within their house, you can retrospectively re-evaluate what you just saw and identify certain clues that were implemented into the film.

I won't go into details but the second half of the film is some of the most heart wrenching images to watch, from a fictional film standpoint.
