The "wrecked" car is back at the house, at least four months later, after the accident. It is shown for a few seconds after the lead characters first day back at work. Also, at least four months after the accident, there is still snow on the ground and on the house. However, there is more of this snow, which is in the same pattern, than the amount of snow on the first day of the movie. See more »

Don't stick your arm out the window...
19 December 2001 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

When I first heard about this movie, I read about the story: Guys gets a killers body-parts, and now "someone" wants them back. Then I studied the cast: the main character was played by Jeff Fahey (who I knew from "The Lawnmower Man" and "Silverado"), and then I saw Brad Dourif (from the "Child's Play"-movies amongst other spooky flicks, like "Alien 4" and "Nightwatch" ). I thought that it would be watchable only because they were in it, but it actually had a quite interesting story, which raised a couple of questions, such as the mysterious nature of body-part-transplanting, and how bad it could go!

I think there was some spectacular stunts in this movie, and many original ideas (especially when Fahey gets in a driving vehicle!), and it never really stops being exciting! - The final scenes are pretty gross, but generally I thought that the movie was okay! My rating is 7/10
