The interior of the Riverview Hotel was built on Universal's Stage 28, home to the still-standing original "Phantom of the Opera" set. The Riverview was built inside the massive opera house set. When the hotel's false elevator doors were removed for camera access, the view "across the hall" and through the 5th floor elevator shaft was of the gilded gold balconies of the old opera house.

I have read many complaints on how this is "boring" and the scenes are dragged out. I can see how many people are not used to intelligent movies (no offense intended) due to the constant action and cheap scares released in theaters these days. THIS is a movie that deserves a theater release. A very intelligent thriller, with a superb cast that tells a very dark story. The 3 main actors, especially Brittany Murphy, really did an excellent job. The story is told in a flashback/memento way and is executed perfectly. I felt all the flashbacks were correctly positioned and the conclusion might not blow you away- but it's pretty damn good. There are numerous twists and turns but the final twist is jaw-dropping. I want more thrillers like this! 10/10
