Trivia

In post-production, the film was processed by using a technique known as ENR, which deepens shadows and lightens highlights, but doesn't alter any primary colors. See more »

Goofs

When Hobbes shoots the school teacher, after he fires one shot, his gun is apparently empty (the action on any semi-automatic 9mm handgun, like Hobbes' Glock, stays open when the final round is expended, as can be seen in the two quick cuts after the shot is fired). However, when Hobbes approaches the body in each view after-wards, the action of the gun is closed, indicating that he still has ammunition. See more »

Better than you would expect
15 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

This was actually a pretty clever supernatural thriller. When released it failed at the box office, but has deveolped a following since. It's quite fascinating, hardly ever boring, has a nice cast, and is pretty creepy. It probubly failed due to poor marketing, because if a piece of crapp like "Hollow Man"(2000) can be a hit, this film should definately have been a hit. If you like supernatural thrillers, this will be right up your alley. *** out of ****.
