Trivia

The decision to have the camera be instant film vs digital was because it made sense for an aging retired scientist to build the steam-punk-like Polaroid machine out of the old tech that he had lying around his apartment. But because Polaroid film is no longer available, the art department for the movie actually had to fake thousands of Polaroid pictures by shooting them on digital, color correcting them in Photoshop to look like instant film, cutting the insides out of old Polaroids they got on Ebay, and then sliding the printed digital pictures into the instant film sleeves.

Goofs

The huge camera takes pictures and the flash is green. However, when the three tenants enter the room for the first time where the camera is, the flash is white. See more »

Or maybe neither, depending on your view or perspective on the matter or characters that is. But you can't deny, that this movie (clue is in the title), is well thought of. You might not agree with all the twists and turns this takes, but it does so convincingly. Can you see a couple of things coming before our main characters spot them (no pun intended)? Of course you can. Still fun to watch though.

Which all comes down to a neat direction (for a low budget movie that is) and the stellar cast, that really do their best to convey a really "far out" idea. If you like Science Fiction Thrillers, that do use their head a little bit, you could do worse (a lot worse)
