The following differences between the Theatrical and the Unrated versions: 1. The father's bloody hand is a little longer. 2. After Donna tries to reach the police car, you can see an extended shot of her horrified face. 3. The Housekeeper's death scene is more explicit. 4. Claire finding Fenton is slightly altered. In the Theatrical version, Fenton instantly grabs Claire. In the Unrated version, Fenton slowly walks to her and Claire realizes it's him before being grabbed. 5. Claire is shown being stabbed twice in the Theatrical version, while in the Unrated version she is stabbed multiple times. 6. Claire's dead body shows more bloody stab wounds. 7. Micheal's death scene is a little longer. 8. Howard Ramsey's corpse shows a bloody cut wound on his throat, while in the theatrical, it showed no wound at all. 9. Lisa's chase scene is a lot longer in the unrated version: After Lisa falls down the stairs, Fenton is shown pulling his knife out. After Lisa runs to the construction floor, there is one brief shot of Fenton holding a knife. Lisa runs through the corridors a little longer. Fenton is shown walking to the corridors while Lisa is trying to reach the elevator. After Lisa closes the door, Lisa is shown peeking through the doorknob hole and Fenton is seen walking closer. Lisa hiding under the Table is a little longer. 10. After Donna finds Claire's body under the bed, her eyes were shut in the theatrical, while the unrated, her eyes were open. 11. After Michael's body is found by falling down from the closet, there is one more shot of his body. 12. After the SWAT team finds Lisa's body, you can clearly see a massive cut wound on her throat in the unrated. The Theatrical version shows Detective Winn's disgusted and horrified face instead. 13. After Winn sees blood dripping from the vent and peeks up. The employee's corpse is a little different. Just like Claire, his eyes were shut in the theatrical and his eyes were open in the unrated. 13. Bobby's cut throat wound is more bloody. 14. Winn shooting Fenton is more bloody and longer. Bloody gunshot wounds are shown more detailed than the theatrical version. Winn also shot Fenton two more times before he falls down. See more »

***Three Out of Ten Stars***

Where does one begin to try to explain what a complete debacle of a disgrace this film is? Right off the bat, you know you're in trouble when a film production needs eight different producers to get off the ground. This means you have eight different people pulling in eight different creative directions, even if they delusion-ally believe they're all headed in the same direction; they're not. I don't need to re-numerate all the negative aspects of this film which have already been posted on this web site. What I will say, is what a terrible shame Sony dropped $20,000,000 on this waste of a film. Imagine the long line of creative, budding horror film makers that would've jumped at the chance to work with a mere $5,000,000; and in turn, undoubtedly, producing a unique and artistic horror film creation. But instead of adding to the artistic ingenuity of the horror genre, Sony drops this pile of crap in our laps. Thanks for nothing Sony.
