Movie Quote Quiz

Little Girl: I hate Mommy. I want to burn her in her bed with matches. I want to burn her up, all up gone.

Ig Perrish: She went to church every fucking Sunday, she wore a cross around her neck, and did it make ANY difference? No. God turned a blind eye and let her die out here alone and afraid.

E.R. Doctor: You fucking patients! All you care about is yourselves.

Ig Perrish: See, vanity doesn't pay, and it's gonna be a long time before you can even try and look pretty again.

Ig Perrish: In the end, I embraced the horns. Like an angel who fell to earth, I became a devil one last time, but revenge is all consuming, and my time has come to return to you so we can be together again. I mean, if this isn't paradise, I don't know what is.

Ig Perrish: People say you should always do the right thing, but sometimes there is no right thing, and then... well then you just have to pick the sin you can live with.

Father Mould: I could string you up, unless you'd like to do the decent thing and hang yourself. Whadda ya say?

Ig Perrish: Punishing Terry was the hardest thing I've ever done, but forcing him to face his demon was the only way I could help him.

Father Mould: You... you killed that innocent girl, Merrin. There's nothing I can do.

Ig Perrish: I should ask the devil to punish whoever the fuck killed her.

Deliberate mistake: During the entire movie nothing is mentioned about the rape of Merrin until the very end, even though it is quite obvious for a forensic investigator to determine she was raped, and something like that would be very important to help find a suspect. This is done deliberately to continue the plot as rape would make Iggy less of a suspect (being her boyfriend for years) and someone like Lee more (known by Iggy and others he had feelings for her).

Suggested correction: Boyfriends (and even husbands), are routinely accused of and found guilty of raping their partner. Given that they were seen arguing and told by the waitress that she saw Ig dragging Merrin to his car, there's no reason to think the police wouldn't suspect Ig of rape. We don't see any of the proceedings and we are told only a little bit of information about how the characters got to where they are at the start in order to build suspense, it has nothing to do with continuing the plot.

Question: I can't figure out the ending. After Ig kills Lee and turns to stone, it is implied that he and Merrin are reunited in the afterlife, but all we see is the opening scene of the movie. Is that the afterlife? If so, why would they say that they will love each other for the rest of their lives when they are dead?

Answer: Iggy as the narrator says he doesn't know if this is paradise. It seems he's reliving his fondest memory of when they were together. I got the sense it was his last thoughts before he died.
