The time that all clocks stopped due to 'The Effect' was 6.12 am in the morning. This is a reference 6.12 in the Bible's 'Book of Revelations'. The 'Wikipedia' website states this section can be read as: "There occurs a great earthquake where the sun becomes black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon like blood". The 'Bible Gateway' website in the New International Versions reads it as: "I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red". The 'Early Christian Awakenings' website reads is it as: "And I saw when he opened the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the whole moon became as blood".

This is one of my favorite movies of all time. Although it has some flaws such as cheap special effects and a less-than-perfect premise, it is a captivating and frightening story about being alone. The power play between the two men in the 2nd half is outstanding.
Many people are turned off by the very ambiguous ending. Personally, I loved the ending. It is the ambiguity of it that is so refreshing.
