Trivia

The radio station 90.2 (Mhz) that Grant and Paul are listening to in the car on the way out of Auckland is called "The Rock". See more »

Goofs

When the boys turn off the expressway and come to the sign "West Coast (37)", this is completely in the wrong location. Highway 37 is several hundred kilometers to the south in the Waitomo region. The sign "West Coast (37)" was a prop used at Pokeno, just south of Auckland. See more »

Pleasingly clever though flawed ghost story
23 December 2004 | by DrVineSee all my reviews

This is an above average script - compelling at times - but it's let down by uninspired directing and merely adequate acting . If it had been made by M. Night Shyamalan it would have been an absolute blinder, but as it was so many potentially chilling scenes were just wasted opportunities (all "the Locals" appearing out of the dark, Grant hiding in the kitchen, Paul's dawning understanding in the ditch). The rock soundtrack doesn't help either; they're good tunes, but they're not exactly subtle - that all important suspense is killed off once and for all. This is one situation where a Hollywood remake might actually be a good thing.
