Trivia

Anthony Hopkins chose a moldy, mildewy storage room at the Redondo Beach Elks Lodge, CA to film his bedroom dream sequence because he didn't have to dress the walls to look moldy and mildewy. He also used the Lodge Room as a sound-stage for a TV news insert for a later bar scene and filmed the front of the Lodge as an emergency room entrance for his ambulance rush sequence. He signed autographs, posed for pictures, and used one of the Lodge members and his wife in the exterior scene. See more »

Comment on the Slipstream movie
18 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was a disappointment. I was looking forward to seeing a good movie. I am the type of person who starts a movie and doesn't turn it off until the end, but I was forcing myself not to turn it off.

Theonly reason why I didn't turn it off was because I am a huge Christian Slater fan and I wanted to see him act in it. I was really speechless after I finished watching the movie.

This movie was one of the worst movies that I have seen in my life. Thank you Christian Slater for putting some humor into it. If you hadn't been in this movie I would of been bored out of my mind.

I also agree that Anthony Hopkins needs to stick to acting. By the time the movie was over I didn't even get the plot. I was both confused and annoyed.
