At 1:23:00 when Daniel and Jessica arrive at the transformer room, the plate on the door reads "Electromagentic Hazard" instead of "Electromagnetic Harzard" and "Eastlund Transformator" instead of "Eastlund Transformer". The same plate with the same errors is seen on the inside of the door a few minutes later. See more »

Saw it last night. A better film than some comments would suggest. Following clues in a GPS cache event, four teens find themselves in what appears to be an abandoned military installation. As is typical for these movies, the characters act in obviously stupid ways, and find themselves in deep trouble as the facility wakes up. A clever concept, executed fairly well. Not a horror film, but it generates considerable tension. The characters are believable, and the underlying scientific concepts are close enough to reality to add some paranoiac spice to the mix. Might even be true. The film has good sound recording, but the 3-D adds nothing.
