Trivia

Apart from the music videos for "Wish" and "Happiness In Slavery" that can be found on Nine Inch Nails' video compilation/documentary Closure (1997), the movie has never seen an official release, mainly due to the fear of the public mistaking the realistic violence for an actual snuff film. The videos for "Help Me I Am In Hell" and "Gave Up" on Closure (1997) were actually not included in the movie, but are alternate versions. It is a common misconception that the entire movie can be found on Closure (1997). Trent Reznor has hinted heavily that the movie will make it's way onto the DVD release of Closure, and clips from it were shown on the official promotional 'Collected' DVD released in May, 2005.

about the Patricks...
26 August 2003 | by (HoBroken) – See all my reviews

To correct the earlier comment on Robert Patrick being in NIN: It was Robert's brother, Richard, not Robert. Richard Patrick, last I checked, was still in the band Filter, if he is not by now the only member. It was Robert who was in T2, the X-Files, etc. and I think it is him in the Gave Up video. But I don't think he was ever in the band. Richard left the band sometime between Broken and The Downward Spiral, if I remember correctly.
