Session 9

Trivia: The movie was filmed on Sony High Definition camcorders as opposed to traditional 16 or 35mm film. The camcorders used were among the first to offer the cinema standard 24 frames-per-second as an option (as compared to the home-video standard of 30fps) which helped make the image look closer to cinema-quality. The movie was one of the first mainstream films shot primarily on digital video.

Trivia: The film was shot primarily at the Danvers State Asylum, an abandoned hospital. The script was written around the shooting location based on what rooms and corridors were safe to shoot in. Little to no set-dressing had to be done for the film, as it was suitably dilapidated and filled with abandoned medical equipment, which helped add to the film's atmosphere.

Continuity mistake: Gordon mentions that his wife accidentally spilled hot water on his leg and burnt it, but the actor only occasionally limps on it, although we are shown that he has an injured leg. This is mentioned on the commentary.

Gordon: What's the stupidest thing you've ever done?
Phil: You mean aside from coming to work for you?.. Well, I would have to say introducing Hank to Amy. That was pretty fucking stupid. I'd like to have that one back.
