R | | Mystery, Thriller
Stranded at a desolate Nevada motel during a nasty rain-storm, ten strangers become acquainted with each other when they realize that they're being killed off one by one.
The book seen in Ed's car as he picks up Paris is "Being and Nothingness" by Jean-Paul Sartre.
You remember that movie where the ten strangers went to an island, and then they all died, one by one? And then it turned out they weren't strangers, that they all had a connection.
Larry: And you don't mess with the wrong guy when he's gettin' revenge!
In the beginning sequence, Malcolm recites a poem that he made up, beginning with the first line, "As I was walking up the stair,..." Later, in the final lines of the movie, he reiterates this poem in a whisper as Timmy, wording the first line a little differently - "WHEN I was walking up the stairS..." (emphasis added).
The first few opening credits leave behind a letter to the word "IDENTITY" as they fade away.
