Trivia

When Judith is working at the reception desk of the skyscraper hotel in Seattle, Washington, a man named "J. J. McMahon" requires her attention. After all, he does "have a reservation". John J. McMahon, aka "J. J. McMahon" is the CEO of Wilshire Court Productions, the filming company that "created" (filmed, shot, designed, etc.) this film. Using his name is a fitting homage to a man that created an amazing company that created such an outstanding movie. This is also the reason that the credits list him as "Executive" rather than "J. J. McMahon". See more »

Goofs

The Wessex Hotel throughout the movie is revealed to have sixteen floors, with a decorative freeze covering the sealed off 13th floor. However in the initial shot of the outside of the hotel at the first of the movie, only two floors can be seen above the freeze covering the 13th floor, when there should have been three, the 14th, 15th, and 16th.

Really wicked! (in a good way)
25 June 2004 | by (Louisiana, USA!!) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie about 2 years ago, it was awesome! For a recently made film, it really had a spook factor. With the low lights and all that red on the 13th floor really added to the drama of it. I am glad it's on video, when I first tried to find it after I saw it on TBS, I was disappointed that it was a made for TV movie, and they usually didn't put those on video until recently..

I remember the reporter going on the 13th floor, and just the drama of her heart racing, just wondering what was around the corner. This is the kind of movie a guy can take a gal to and really spook her. It just has that factor to it. (if the girl is easily spooked of course)
