Aimee Teagarden is left-handed. You can tell most obviously when she is bowling. See more »
When Travis comes out of the school toward the beginning of the movie, and talks to the coach, there is fog all in the background around the bleachers.
This goes from foggy, to clear to foggy, in between shots. See more »
For me this is not a horror film, it's only a thriller
As also mentioned from other reviewers there are similarities between Mr. Brooks and this film. If Mr. Brooks is a Crime/Drama/Mystery film, this film cannot be a horror film, because Mr. Brooks has definitely harder scenes as this one. I don't know if the makers of this movie claim that they filmed a horror movie. If yes then it is a really poor horror film and you will be disappointed as a horror movie fan. But if you watch it as a Crime/Thriller it is watchable and not a waste of time. It depends on what your expectation is. In marketing the product must be declared correctly: if you declare horror in a product, horror must be in the product.
In the music business there is a genre named easy-listening, translated into the movie business I would say this film is a "easy-watching" film: not bad and not really good.
