When Capt. Sedman interviews Sanderson after the murder of Debi Rutlege he states that she is not listed in the directory. Yet when Kathy later goes through Sandersons directory to look for a pizza place there is an entry for Debi Rutlege which Sanderson has marked.
The European cut of the film runs approximately 11 minutes longer and goes into greater detail about the relationship between Peter and his dead wife. Several of the dialogue scenes also run longer. The US cut was shortened to speed up the pace and make the film more action-packed.
