Florida seemed like the jungle to Victor Salva who weighed 400Ibs at the time, found the heat and humidity unbearably oppressive though he noted that Jonathan Breck had it worst having to endure the weather from under mounds of latex, there were so many noisy insects that during outdoor shots with audible dialogue a crew member had to fire a pistol before the cameras rolled in order to silence the insects to capture a take.

The UK DVD release omits Darry's screams at the end to secure a 15 rating (though they are audible on the director's commentary track). However the US DVD remains uncut and Darry's screams can clearly be heard in the film. See more »

JUSTIN LONG and GINA PHILIPS are brother and sister returning home for spring break when they run into road rage and a monster who comes out of hiding after long hibernation to kill humans for body parts that keep him thriving.
It's a fairly suspenseful horror flick with the leads making the usual mistakes so that they can come into contact with the flesh eating monster who clearly is after one of them for a purpose not revealed until the end.
Long is amusing as the brother who has some good lines to say to his irritating sister as they squabble over how to approach the idea of hunting down a monster. His facial expression is mainly one of shock at finding dead bodies at the bottom of a barrel-shaped pipe and he keeps up the shocked look throughout most of the film.
There are some genuinely scary moments and a lot of silliness in the plotting which is pretty par for the course in these kind of thrillers. At least there's one saving grace: the director doesn't use the shaky camera movement or fast cutting to get his effects. He doesn't have to. The tale is chilling enough.
