Did You Know?

Trivia

The scenes where Tree leaves Carter's dorm room and walks through the campus quad, with the same specific events happening each time (i.e. The couple getting soaked by the sprinklers, the car alarm going off, etc.) took two days to shoot. At one point, the sprinklers malfunctioned and couldn't be turned off, costing the crew at least an hour of filming until they were finally able to fix it. See more »

Goofs

When Tree is in her hospital room, there is a rack by the door containing three boxes of latex gloves, all size (S)mall. A real hospital room always stocks three different sizes of gloves: (S)mall, (M)edium and (L)arge, because one size of gloves does not fit all hands. See more »

Surprisingly better than I expected!

This type of movie has been done many times before and rarely succeeds, but this one was a hit for me!

Jessica Rothe's performance is what kept me interested... she nailed her character and was convincing and funny as well.

I don't want to give too much away, but the twists towards the end were a nice surprise and earned a few extra points from me.

It's classified as a Horror, Mystery, Thriller but it's also a comedy as I found myself laughing a bunch of times.

Certainly a must-see entertaining film produced and executed very well, much better than many other films in this genre.

It's a well deserved 9/10 from me.
