Running Scared

Running Scared (2006)

2 corrected entries

Corrected entry: The premise that the gun has to be found so it doesn't link Joey and his fellow mobsters to the shoot out at the beginning of the movie makes no sense. Since Joey has retrieved the bullets fired off by Oleg and considering that the gun has gone through so many hands there is no evidence at all that the gun has ever been in Joey's possession.

Correction: Except for the entire scene in the strip club where the dirty cop is black mailing them because he was in the shoot out at the beginning of the movie, saw that gun being used to shot a cop in the crotch, and then saw Joe at the hospital trying to swap the bullets. That entire scene explains how the gun is linked to Joe.

Corrected entry: The f-word is spoken 275 times.


Correction: Counting expletives in a movie is hardly trivia. If it was, it would be equally valid to count any word used in the film.

The money that the two gang members are counting in the opening view of the hotel room scene is obviously fake. Notice how white the bills are, when they should be greener and have more of the random anti-counterfeit features.



Throughout the movie, references to the Grimm fairy tales can be seen everywhere. The 'pedophile scene' was supposed to be heavily influenced by the Hansel and Gretel fairy tale. The door mat is German for "Hansel and Gretel" in mixed up letters. Also, the name on the medicine bottle Oleg grabs is Edele Hansel. The prostitute is supposed to be the Blue Fairy, Oleg being captured by the homeless man is Little Red Riding Hood. Above all, the town's name, though never stated, is Grimley.
