Can't wait to get my DVD!
17 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is awesome especially for those that like hanging on the edge of their seat! I was so surprised at the ending. I spoke with some friends who also watched it today and we all seem to pick up different things and have a different take on it. I plan to watch it again tonight on my computer while it's still streaming for free. It's definitely one of those movies that you have to watch more than once. I know each time I watch it I'm going to pick up something that I missed. I'm glad I ordered the DVD, which remarkably was only $5.

After I watch it one more time, I'm going to come back and post a message where others who have seen it can give their opinions on what was going on. IF any of the filmmakers are on this board and care to give us some hints, that would be helpful! :o) Or perhaps they chose for us to draw our own conclusions.
