The music associated with Muraki and his army makes extensive use of the "Dies irae" melody, a medieval chant traditionally used in ceremonies for the dead and, since the nineteenth century, in contexts evoking the macabre and supernatural. See more »
(at around 45 mins) As Ethan and Sarah are on the beach after Ethan gets her out of the Hospital, Sarah is dressed in hospital gown and slippers, she slips off her slippers and then walks down the beach. In the long shot she is wearing her slippers and then the next shot is a close up of both of them and in the lower left corner you see her slippers sitting on the beach where she took them off.

This movie serves as a timely warning to anyone who thinks they can both write and direct their own movie. Face it, you can't. Because that way there's nobody around to tell you when you hack great holes in your plot, have meaningless transitions, trite, unmemorable dialog and manage to turn a fairly cool Korean legend into a steaming pile of celluloid turd.
I wanted to like this movie as a trashy popcorn movie, really I did; I like lots of crappy movies. But once I've been forced to ask myself what the hell just happened and WHY, DEAR LORD, WHY? more than a few times, I really can't take it any more.
Also, I would love for someone to explain how LA became Mordor for the last scene.
