Some scenes now include pop songs of the 60s and 80s. All foreshadowing hinting at the movie's conclusion has been removed. Many of Jerrid Foiles' lines were cut. Also removed are any time a character uses the word "paranoia." Many lines have been cut from the final church scene. Some sound effects were also fixed, namely a more appropriate glass shattering sound near the beginning of the film. See more »

Good Movie to Watch More Than Once!
16 September 2011 | by timmaher94See all my reviews

Being a fan of Brad Jones I had to check out his movie. Brad did an excellent job on writing the script and he was also good at acting too. The rest of the cast and crew did a good job to help movie the movie along. The movie was cliché but it is very good at keeping your attention. Being a screenwriter myself I was glad to see Brad follow a good three act screenplay. You know you have a good script when you see the main character introduced in the first moment of the film and at the end of it. It's better than a lot of films I've seen out of Hollywood lately. If you don't know of Brad and his friends you have to check out his work on his website. The directing was excellent and I recommend this movie.
