Factual error: The briefcase containing $1 million was full of $100 bill straps, two columns by six straps or $120k per layer. Eight layers would have been 4 inches tall, not including the four straps left over. The top and bottom portions of the case were equal depth and only the bottom half was full. The case would have had to be approximately 8 inches deep, which it evidently was not, to hold $1 million.

Trivia: "The Box" was based on a short horror story entitled "Button Button" by prolific and legendary sci-fi author Richard Matheson. Matheson's original story was first published in a 1970 issue of Playboy Magazine. He adapted his own story for the screen in a 1985 episode of the new "Twilight Zone" TV series, but it was significantly rewritten after he submitted it. Matheson was so angered by the Twilight Zone rewrite that he refused to allow his real name in the episode credits and instead used his pseudonym, "Logan Swanson."
