Did You Know?


Lead actor Stephen Dorff is really claustrophobic. Director Gabe Torres did not know this until after filming wrapped. Torres stated that Dorff's willingness to stay inside a glass box for the duration of filming was "extreme method acting". See more »


When Jeremy reaches through the tube to the interior of the car, he pulls back his hand with two knuckles scraped raw and a cigarette lighter burn on his hand. The knuckle wounds remain but the cigarette lighter burn disappears within seconds. See more »


Jeremy Reins: If you know me so well, you should know that I won't tell you anything.

very exciting but bad ending
3 December 2012 | by (jeddah,saudi) – See all my reviews

what an exciting movie , i hope i didn't see last 2 minutes, everything was going amazing till the end , but it seems like you made a superb cake and then u put salt over it .... the movie can be put in the category of SAW , Panic room ,Buried... 99% of the movie is inside a car trunk... there was only one actor and the others are voices except last 5 minutes. I felt that it was unfair to give the movie less than eight marks due to the ending.... I want to focus on molly , even her role was only voice then 2 minutes of acting , she really was great , she did the romance-evil switch in an excellent way... convincing in both faces. you will be thrilled ,surprised , frustrated... the end kills the meanings of sorrow , love & sacrifice. I recommended it for every body, deserve watching although the shocking end.
