Trivia: Jensen Daggett was genuinely terrified when actor Kane Hodder pulled her towards him, through the porthole. This is because a huge shard of glass was right by her throat and Kane was unknowingly pulling her toward it. You can see the frightened look on her face. (00:53:25)

Question: What was with the ending? He melts down to a regular looking boy when in the original he was shown as deformed. I hate this ending, consider it the weakest and worst of the franchise.
