Trivia

Goofs

When Elaine first arrives at the City Agencies office, watch the display board which lists the names of all of the departments within the building. While the departments should be listed in numerical order, the office for the Public Transportation department (#615) is inadvertently listed below numbers 669 and 689, rather than before them. Note that the "Transportation" in "Public Transportation" is misspelled. The "T" and the "A" from the word's third syllable are missing, and the word written on the sign actually reads "TRANSPORTION". Also note that while AGING is spelled "Ageing" in Australia and places overseas, the Americanized version of the word is correctly spelled "Aging". While few places in the USA do spell it "Ageing", It might have been assumed that spelling it correctly would confuse certain people as to it's correct pronunciation, and thus it was spelled phonetically...

VERY GOOD
21 September 1999 | by Nancy-40See all my reviews

This was a very good movie, i watch it every time its on. A girl (michelle Greene) is staying at this hotel and finds that the elevator stops at a floor wich is the 13th. She sees a dead body on the floor and then passes out and when she wakes up she tells the hotel workers what she saw and they don't believe her and tell her it was from being hit on the head but she finds that there is a 13th floor and with a little help from some people she finds that its used for cult rituals. Also the doctor she falls in love with may be in on it. its a very good interesting grabbing movie, kinda makes you think twice about staying at a hotel your unfamiliar with.
