Hello... Hello... Hello?
Signs of people that have disappeared are everywhere in the beginning of the movie. But it seems that they took their clothes with them, but left cars and other things that surrounded them. The exception are babies, who left even their blankets and supposedly left naked.
During the closing credits the scene cuts to a close up of Zac Hobson staring in stunned disbelief at what he's beholding. Then he realizes he's still holding his mini-tape recorder in his left hand, and after a moment of contemplation lets it drop to his side, as if there are no words to describe the sight.
