The producers negotiated free scanning for the digital effects sequences from one of the leaders in the industry. The night before the digital effects work was to start on the film, the small effects house that had agreed to do the work for the film on a deferred basis backed out. Within the week, the filmmakers were meeting with Manex Effects, one of the biggest houses, and the people responsible for the Academy Award-winning effects in "The Matrix".

No one that you ever knew, or loved, or who loved you, or anyone who was ever anything to you that made you think that they might be as real as you are, ever proved that all six billion of the rest of us aren't all in it together against you.

This movie has exactly the right balance between horror and humor and, more importantly, between revealing too much and revealing too little. Some questions are answered at the end, but some are not, and I for one like that some are not. It is not a pat, boil-in-the-bag horror movie. It is intelligent and requires that you pay attention, but it's not as if that's terribly hard to do, because it succeeds in being entertaining throughout. Those expecting pornographic vivisections will be disappointed; compared to movies like "Hellraiser," this film is more rightly classified as "psychological thriller" than horror. It remains an excellent movie, however, and if you don't get it maybe you ought to watch again. Pay a bit more attention next time.
