Trivia

According to director Doug Liman, the title sequence was shot for $500 using his out-of-pocket funds. He brought the cat along to chase the rats and motivate them to run, but the rats weren't afraid of the cat. Rather, the opposite was true, so Liman filmed the rats chasing the cat and then re-edited the footage. See more »

An Oddly Memorable Movie
21 May 2000 | by (NJ) – See all my reviews

I watched this film in August of 1999 on Comedy Central. They usually show really horrible movies in the morning, but this one stood out. It wasn't one of their cheesy movies from the 80's they show. It wasn't one that had no known faces. It featured the funny guy from Friends (Perry), a funny comic (Chappelle), a bombshell (Swanson), and the star of Ally McBeal (Flockheart). Not to mention Andrew McCarthy, who plays a great diabolical character. I have only seen this movie twice (I wish I could find a video store that had it, but sadly I can't.). The story flows smoothly and the murder scenes made me shiver, but they were awesome! Not bad for a movie based in 1993.
