At the very end when Bret comes back with the cops. The LAPD car is in front of Bret's Volvo SUV. The cop car is a crown Victoria and has the number 22 on the trunk.
A few minutes later after the finale when they're sitting in the ambulance another cop car pulls up behind Bret's SUV and it's a LAPD charger and also has the number 22 on the trunk. See more »
This movie is great. It immediately engages and then keeps the audience's attention. The story is compact, the acting strong and ending plausible. Perhaps the strongest performance is that of Marie Bello, who plays an emotionally disturbed woman. However, all of the performances are outstanding. The movie succeeds in creating a mood of foreboding as all are engaged in a fight for survival against an unknown malevolent force. The movie avoids the pitfall of becoming just another scary movie with contrivances that inspire laughter. Instead, it succeeds in telling a story and building the tension to its inevitable climax. That is the hallmark of excellent story telling and why this movie is worth watching.
