When exiting the building with Rod, Mya gets into a Honda with standard shifter; after the crash just before picking the CD player it can be seen that the car is now an automatic, and in the exterior shots the car is a Toyota. See more »
If you're going to let 3 different directors make a horror movie...
Make sure that one of them isn't going to try and turn it into a Three Stooges-esque wacky comedy. Yet another potentially great horror movie utterly ruined by some really terrible directing choices, mainly the 2nd reel.
It was very compelling through the first act and I was really enjoying it, then it suddenly changed into a wacky dark slapstick comedy seemingly out of nowhere in the second act, it's very stilted as it seems to just come out of nowhere and it's very out of place. I understand what they were trying to do with this but it just failed miserably, this pretty much ruined the dead serious atmosphere and tone and it doesn't help that the 3rd act was pretty weak on it's own merit as a follow up. In order for a scary movie to be scary, it has to take itself seriously and this movie begins like this, then becomes a total farce, and then ends serious again.
If you're really desperate, there's some merit to this but I can only recommend it to horror fans if you're truly desperate like I was when I watched it. Better yet, watch the first 30 minutes of it then turn it off and go watch something better, it's the only part worth seeing.
