Simon Cowell to return to X Factor. It was a mixed bag with the girls. Essex teenager Amy Mottram had a lovely soulful tone. Georgina Garrett was a petite blonde whose rich, powerful voice seemed to belong to someone else. Waitress Sharon Rose was more restrained but equally impressive. However proceedings closed on a grim note. Bodystocking-clad Britney Spears impersonator Lorna Bliss was the sort of grasping desperado who gives talent shows a bad name — hungry for fame rather than remotely musical.
As she ran through her tawdry repertoire of stripper-style dance moves and got roundly booed, the contrast with heroic humanity in east London could hardly have been clearer. Terms and Conditions.

Style Book. Amber eventually comes looking for her, but when she enters the house, she is heard screaming after seeing Micah's body. The creature possessing Katie leaves her body, scaring Amber out of the house before returning to Katie, who resumes rocking back and forth. Police officers arrive at the house about a half hour later and discover Micah's body as well. They call to Katie, who wakes from her catatonic state and seems confused.
Katie comes out of the bedroom with the knife still in her hand. The police ask her to drop the knife. Following a heated confrontation, a door behind one of the police officers slams shut, startling one of the officers, which causes him to shoot Katie, killing her.

A third alternate ending was written in which a possessed Katie would corner Micah and bludgeon him to death with his camera, while viewers watch from the camera's point of view. This version was deemed too complicated and too brutal to shoot. The version with the new ending, made after Paramount acquired the film, had screenings on September 25, , in twelve college towns across the United States.

On October 6, Paramount announced that the movie would be released nationwide if the film received one million "demands" on Eventful. The full limited release of the film started on October 9. The home release includes an alternate ending to the theatrical version. Additionally, at the end of the film, 15 minutes' worth of names were added to the DVD release, as part of a special promotion: the fans who "demanded" the film were asked by email if they wanted to have their name appear as a thank you for the film's success.
