The film's budget is sometimes incorrectly listed as 65 million. The actual budget was 24 million and only amounted to the former number after promotional material, theatre rentals, and other hidden costs post-shooting. See more »
(at around 16 mins) In the film, Karla Wilson wins a radio contest after answering "Rio de Janeiro" to the question "What is the capital of Brazil?" The capital of Brazil since April 21, 1960 is Brasilia, not Rio de Janeiro. (Rio de Janeiro served as the capital city from 1763 to April 21, 1960 when the capital status was officially relocated to Brasilia.) But this is explained later in the film (at around 1h 9 mins) that no matter what answer she gave she would have won regardless if it was right or wrong as the trip was a set-up. See more »

depressing what passes for a horror movie these days
Don't bother.Unless you are very easily entertained and have not seen any decent horror movies to compare this to. I would say the first one was OK, having seen it in the theater with a screaming audience made it more fun, but not in my list of top 20 horror movies. This sequel makes the first one look like a masterpiece. I figured out who the killer was about 15 minutes into the movie. The only slightly amusing part was Jeffrey Combs, who starred in the classic Re-Animator and many Stuart Gordon films. He is amusing but too good for crap like this! I Hope they at least paid him good money, the poor guy. Also, why did she flip out when she was locked in the tanning bed? The killer turns the heat up all the way...first of all, it isn't possible to turn it up enough to "cook" someone, especially in about 5 seconds. Oooooo, a tanning bed. I'm shaking in my shoes! No suspense, no nothing, and the ending was OK but made no logical sense. Of course there will be a third movie that will start out with her waking up from a bad dream that is the end of this one. Yeah, and I had a bad dream that I wasted 3 bucks an 90 minutes of my life watching this crud. No wait, that was real! Aaaaaaiiie!
