In Vegas Dolan stays at The Montressor Hotel. This is a tip to the story that inspired Stephen King to write 'Dolan's Cadillace' - Poe's 'The Cask of Amontillado'. "For the love of God, Montressor!" is a famous line from this tale. See more »
The highway where "Dolan" is "buried", according to the film (shown on a sign and on the work order) is US Highway 71.
US 71 is nowhere near Las Vegas or Los Angeles. It runs from Southern La. to Northern Mn. See more »
In his experimental law of impacts, Sir Isaac Newton describes something called the arc of descent. It's all about kinetics, mass, velocity, the inertia of falling persons and things. Once a descending object acquires a certain momentum, it continues on a downward parabolic curve to eventually impact with an immovable object at the nadir, the bottom, thereby consummating the arc of descent.

I'm not sure why this would be a direct to DVD movie because it is a lot better than some of the crap I have seen hit the theaters. I mean, the movie "The Watchmen" made it into the theaters didn't it? or "The Spirit? Now those were a waste of time in my opinion. I love Christian Slater and he did an excellent job portraying an evil bastard that you love to hate. As said on another comment, it's not a huge blockbuster but it is definitely a good watch and I would recommend it. Perhaps you need to be a little morbid to enjoy it as much as I did but it needs to get the recognition that it deserves. Just because the trailer shows a lot of the movie doesn't mean you know everything. Trust me, I was surprised at the end. I give it a "2 thumbs up!"
