When Rachel is preparing to do her architecture story, she is looking a newspaper clipping with a picture of the Sullivan House. The clipping is folded, but you can clearly see the headline of the story for the picture reads "Massacre at Fillmore." Later they act surprised to find the same unfolded clipping and read the story.

It's not THAT bad.
3 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, I just saw the movie and I didn't think that it was THAT bad. The other reviewer is correct the acting sucks, big time, but if you actually give it a chance and try to get into the character then it's not so bad. I would not recommend buying or renting it but if you're stuck somewhere out in the middle of nowhere with cable and the movie just so happens to come on, it might be OK. Yes the escaped convict plot is alright, way too played out. There are actually kind of two "twists". The first is pretty obvious from the get-go. The other surprised me a little but it did not improve the movie what-so-ever. I think that the characters the were in The Devil's Rejects, should stay there. There is "supposed" to be a tender moment between the parents and the daughter and I could only laugh. Now if "tender" meant "awkward" then I could understand. All in all this was a pretty bad movie. Don't waste ANY money on this or you'll be sorry.
