When Nick puts the gun to the head of one of Bill Harley's men, he asks the man where he is. The man says "Stygian Street". Stygian (2000) is the title of one of James Wan's student films. Stygian Street is also the name of the street of Jigsaw's first lair in Saw (2004), another Wan film. "Stygian" usually refers to the River Styx (near Hades, the underworld). See more »
During the hockey game, Brendan is seen wearing a half-shield visor. In high school, collegiate, and junior level hockey leagues, it is a common rule that full face masks are required for all players. It is not until professional level hockey that players are allowed to wear half-shields or no facial protection at all. See more »
I know many people on here have posted that this film isn't based in reality and I for one am GLAD!!! We see reality too often day in and day out on the news, and the sad truth of it is, the bad guys usually get away with murder and don't suffer any repercussions for it. So it's great to see a film that delivers to us what it would be like if justice was served! Director, James Wan of the original "SAW" movie shows us he is not a one trick pony and can deliver his talents past just the horror genre. Kevin Bacon and the rest of the cast did a wonderful job delivering a very believable grief stricken family, I would definitely recommend this film!
