Apt Pupil

Visible crew/equipment: Dolly tracks are visible in Ian McKellen's house on the carpet.

Continuity mistake: Keep a close eye on Ian McKellen's picture in the newspaper. When the picture was taken, he was in bed and reclined; the picture in the newspaper has him standing, against a wall and holding a small paper with numbers on it mug shot style.


Kurt Dussander: Boy, be careful. You play with fire.


Question: Why did script writer Brandon Boyce change the ending of the story? In Stephen King's book, Todd Boyden commits suicide but he doesn't in the film.

Chosen answer: He didnt commit suicide in the book, he took his rifle to a fortified spot alongside a highway, and began shooting at cars. The police killed him. The film seems to tone down the story a lot, so I guess the only answer is they didn't really want to end it in such a violent way.
