Just as Paul thinks he's about to be rescued, he is told over the phone that the coffin they dug up had the body of Mark White (the man Paul was told about who went missing and was apparently never found). Realizing there's no way to get to Paul in time, the man on the other line apoligizes to Paul as he suffocates to death.


Other mistake: When the man requesting money hangs up on him, a dial tone follows. Cell phones don't have dial tones.
