The film opened at one theater, Highland Park Village Theater in Dallas, Texas. It ran for six days, and made $30 at the box office. A crew member who took a friend got a refund, so the final domestic box-office gross was $20 or the equivalent of three tickets sold. See more »
I'll go with 5 on this one, I don't think it's that bad of a watch, though it did lose me here and there and some of the flash-forwards and backwards threw me off in the way they're cut together. I do agree with others that this is a different role for Heigl and she doesn't do too bad at it. I'm not sure if she would take that as a compliment given the role, but I love seeing the diversity and you have to start somewhere, right :)? Why not Zyzzyx Rd? I guess I'm a little thrown by the different spellings of the road, since I believe the "other film" Zzyzx actually has it correct, which if that's the case, I'm not sure why they spelled the title of this film as they did. There's also the fact that the 2 apparently came out the same year. Nevertheless, this wasn't a bad watch and I would suggest it to folks who like the Horror/Suspense/Thriller thing.
