The Trigger Effect

Visible crew/equipment: When Matthew walks from the hospital to the pharmacist to steal the prescription for their baby, the trolley camera and the guy pulling it are reflected in the shop window.

Visible crew/equipment: While walking up the driveway at the very end, reflected in the Volvo's trunk lid is some of the crew and the boom operator.

Trivia: The story was inspired by the classic television show "The Twilight Zone" (1959) in the episode "The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street," which depicts the denizens of the street slowly becoming crazy after a power failure. In fact, in the film's production notes, Matthew and Annie live on the corner of Maple and Willoughby (another classic TZ episode, "A Stop At Willoughby"), obvious allusions to "The Twilight Zone".

Joe: The Martians have landed. They want our women.

Matthew: Is it bad out there?
Cop: Out where?
