Goofs

The characters are supposedly stuck in the house because they're snowed in, however the height of the snow outside actually keeps changing dramatically throughout the movie. It's extremely snowy in the beginning when everyone arrives, almost snow-free when Papa Doc runs outside in an attempt to save his wife, and finally modestly snowy again at the very end. See more »

Quotes

Lovely: Have you ever wanted to make love to a woman? To touch a woman... make love? Stand up. Stand up! Take your shirt off. Take your shirt off.
[he throws it to her]
Lovely: I didn't want it! Pull your pants down. Come on, pull your pants down. Come on pull down your pants! Now, what would you like to do?
Ralph: I have to feed my rabbits.

Disturbing.
16 July 2001 | by (Joplin, MO) – See all my reviews

I found this movie disturbing. Young girl putting a piranha in a woman's bathtub, while the others hold her down. The sheer frustration of the triumph of evil over good. The hopelessness of fighting an evil that outsmarts you every turn, with no weapons either. I had to stay up a while after seeing this movie. I just found it disturbing.
