Ted Dekker, author of the novel, was on set nearly every shooting day. In many cases he put three lines into the shot as an homage to the book cover. While some of these lines are drawn on walls and such, they also show up as objects (chalk, pencils, etc...). See more »
When Kevin is talking on his cell for the first time, the background and reflections on the car are from the seminary location, until the film cuts to the tunnel (which magically comes out of nowhere). See more »
That's a bunch of psycho crap! Your book is crap! You couldn't even figure out who the Riddle Killer is, and he's standing right in front of you!

The reviews will lead to believe that this is a bad movie. Maybe you will dislike it. But if you take their opinion alone, you are seriously missing out.
To sum it up quickly, the movie revolves around a guy who is being stalked by a killer. The killer leaves him vague riddles and short time limits to solve them.
The story is a lot more detailed than I can really explain, but it is not confusing to follow. I would like to point out now that this is not a horror movie. If you are looking for blood and gore and nothing else, then move on. But this is definitely a suspense "hold-your-breath" thriller. Because I accidentally read some spoilers before watching the movie, I already knew what was going to happen. But I still sat at the edge of my seat, wide-eyed and excited. This is a psychological thriller to the max.
Yes, this is a movie with Christian undertones, but for those of you who are turned off by that, don't be. Most of the religious blah blah dissipates in the first 10 or 15 minutes. Overall in the movie, I didn't think there was a lot of overdone religion in it - though just a hair less of it would have made the movie better.
As a horror fan and a thriller fan, I think you should really check this movie out. Don't expect gore and blood and you'll love it.
Despite the negative reviews on here, give the movie a chance. You'll thank me.
