A group of delinquents are sent to clean the Blackwell Hotel. Little do they know reclusive psychopath Jacob Goodnight has holed away in the rotting hotel. When one of the teens is captured, those who remain - a group that includes the cop who put a bullet in Goodnight's head four years ago - band together to survive against the brutal killer.

This place is a goddamn maze, but I got the blueprints.
In an early shot, in the trailer park, garbage and waste is shown everywhere. One shot shows a close up of an old newspaper. On the paper is visible in bold print HOLDEN which is the Australasian wing of GM, in fact the HOLDEN badge is also partly visible. Also, but not so obvious, also printed is the name of the Brisbane suburb Wynnum. Clearly a poorly chosen page from a local newspaper revealing the Queensland, Australia shooting location.
Among the end credits, after the cast and stunt list, there's a scene where a dog urinates in Jacob's empty eye socket
German DVD release by Kinowelt was cut by 11 seconds (cell phone scene) to secure a light SPIO: JK approval (meaning they were allowed to advertise the film, a normal approval would result in prohibition of advertising). Additionally, a FSK-18 version was created for retail chains, which was cut by 3 minutes.
