Kevin Bowen, who played the police officer, received third degree burns over his pelvis and thighs while filming a scene. Originally, Richard Kyanka was to walk down to the basement and shoot a flare gun into the police officer's crotch. While Bowen was wearing a fireproof suit underneath his costume for the shot, Kyanka missed his target and hit Bowen's lower legs, setting his pants on fire. As a result, Bowen's last scene is him clutching the board. The last shot of the film was a last-minute replacement as an ending. See more »
Linux claps his hands together after throwing the doll out the back door. The clapping sound is still heard after he puts his hands down. See more »
This is an Indy horror flick. But don't let that scare you away! This movie definitely goes against the grain with something I like to call "Scaracters." This is an edge of your seat, jaw dropper with a twist of such caliber that hasn't been seen since 'The Sixth Sense.'There isn't gore or nudity in this film, and that's what makes it refreshingly different from your standard horror movie. It also doesn't use any of those cheap scare tactics you see in every run of the mill Ring ripoff nowadays.
When you watch this movie, you are legitimately scared. First, you are scared for the characters. Rich Kyanka is moving in this film. He can make you cry with a subtle face movement. Kevin Bowen excels in this film at well, but he is almost overshadowed by the gritty realism Kyanka brings to the table. Secondly, you are scared for yourself. The first time you see this movie, you may have to stop it to catch your breath. It's that good.
The plot twists and turns will no doubt leave you guessing the way they left me and my friends guessing, and I have faith in the fact that it will take several viewings to catch everything that brings together the "doom house" universe in ways you won't see coming.
