After Nicole and Jess drive away from the house at the beginning of the picture and are shown driving on the highway, they pass under a sign that says "Soledad Highway exit", which means that they're driving on the Antelope Valley Freeway (CA State Rt. 14), north of Los Angeles. But shortly afterwards they pass another sign on the side of the road that says "Welcome to California", implying that they've just crossed the border into California, when in reality at that point they would have already been in California for quite some time.

But it's not. The plot isn't all that bad, the actors aren't all terrible so it should be decent. Instead though despite a good starting point the plot just drags on and suffers from a lot of those "I can't believe he/she is so dumb" moments so often used in horror movies to keep things going. It frustrated me at times watching some of the decision made by the lead character. Also it took way too long to get to the good part of the movie. Anticipation is great but you can't spend over half the movie building it up. A shame too since it got decent exposure upon release and hit right before the big Halloween season. Even so I have a feeling this is going to get at least one sequel, if not more so maybe they'll be able to build on the strong general plot to eventually release something decent.
