The characters in the movie pronounce "Weil" (as in Weil's Disease) to rhyme with "wheel". The doctor after whom the disease was named, Adolph Weil (1848 -1916), was German; his name should be pronounced to rhyme with "while" (and if you're a stickler for accuracy, the "w" should be pronounced like an English "v").

I had the pleasure to work on this film as the Second Unit Director (I shot all the rat stuff), but never got a chance to see the final product until tonight ,Sept 19 /02. It was fun. It's not The Godfather but i found it well edited and the folks at Core Digital did an excellent job with the water sequence and the rat multiplying. Carls death was great. It just reminded me that the stunt co-ordinator of the film Anton (Ty) Tyakodi was killed in a helicopter accident a couple weeks after we finished shooting. I'll miss him. John, learn how to move the camera and get off the long lenses once in a while. Too bad it was up against Survivor Thailand, no one probably saw it. Thanks to Eric and Robert for the chance to work on it.
