Trivia

The Gimli Slider restaurant's name is based on the Gimli Glider, an Air Canada plane that took off without the full load of fuel it was scheduled to get on July 23, 1983. Its two pilots had to glide it down, without power, for an emergency landing, at Gimli Industrial Park Airport. See more »

Goofs

Lapointe mentions that he requires his "Double double, with eight sugars." A "double double" is a common way of ordering coffee in Tim Hortons (a very popular coffee chain in Canada) and refers to wanting your coffee with two creams and two sugars. The addition of "eight sugars" therefor makes no sense. See more »

Quotes

Border Agent: A Canadian doesn't get sad. Sadness was made by the USA.
Wallace Bryton: Oh, come on. What does that mean?
Border Agent: [pointing at Canadian flag] Take off, it's true. Right there on our flag. It's right there when you look at it. When you see past that sacred Maple Leaf, you know what you see?
Wallace Bryton: A white wall?
Border Agent: You see that in America - you may be red, white and blue. But in Canada, you're red, white, but never blue, eh?

Great horror comedy if you understand that its COMEDY
8 January 2017 | by sca-52350See all my reviews

OK so i see a lot of hate for this movie and its clear most people don't understand it. Its a comedy. Its very good at what its trying to do. My wife and i were in tears laughing at this movie, we thought it was one of the funniest we have seen in years. If you like horror comedy than this is for you. If you have a weak sense of humor or are easily grossed out don't even bother. You ll just add to the perception that its not a good movie which isn't true. Just don't take it seriously like the idiots around here and you'll love it. God i saw one review complaining about how the end could never legally happen. Duh. Its a joke. Great movie. 10/10 if your not an idiot.
