A mysterious man arrives at the offices of an FBI agent and recounts his childhood: how his religious fanatic father received visions telling him to destroy people who were in fact "demons."
Powers Boothe is one of Bill Paxton's favorite actors. They met on Tombstone and became friends, "and when I read this script I immediately thought of him as kind of the iconic FBI guy."
He can make me dig this stupid hole, but he can't make me pray, you hear?
The timing of light flooding the bedroom is a little bit off at around 17 mins when Dad opens the curtains in the boys' room because it was shot on a stage. In the director commentary, Bill Paxton adds "It doesn't bother me, stuff like that."
Directors Sam Raimi, Ivan Reitman and James Cameron, among others, are thanked at the end of the credits.
