Trivia

The "Bog Man" is heard speaking occasionally throughout the movie. A lot of what he says is nothing other than grunting, but several phrases are actually modern Irish, specifically, "Uisce" (water) and "Saoirse" (freedom, usage is unrelated to the name of the female lead). See more »

Goofs

When the group are foraging for food around the cabin, one of them "digs up" a potato. However, it had clearly been placed there, as there were no roots attached and no potato plant leaves above ground. See more »
