Trivia: At the very beginning, David sits in front of his newest drawing, showing a man with two guns, a rose right of him and a tower far behind on the left side. This drawing shows Roland, a character out of "The Dark Tower", a well-known series of books from Stephen King. This drawing is shown again, some time later after the storm, and David tells that this drawing was meant to become a film poster. (00:00:30)
Trivia: During the scene when the monsters enter the store, watch for when the man on fire stumbles into a book rack. All of the books are Stephen King novels.
Amanda Dunfrey: I just want you to know that it's okay... being scared. And, well, if you need a friend, someone to talk too.
Mrs. Carmody: I have a friend. God, up above. I talk to him everyday. Don't you condescend me.
Amanda Dunfrey: I'm sorry?
Mrs. Carmody: Not ever. You don't mock me.
Amanda Dunfrey: That's not what I was doing.
Mrs. Carmody: I'll tell you what. The day I need a friend like you, I'll just have myself a little squat and shit one out.
Question: After watching the film, I was wondering, does anyone know if the novella (upon which this film is based) or any similar Stephen King works served as inspiration to Konami's "Silent Hill" video game franchise? I am asking, because there are certainly some similarities between these works, both stylistic and in terms of tone.
Question: When is the movie supposed to take place? I know the book was set in the 80s, and I thought the film was, as well. Most of the cars seemed to be 80s era vehicles, but the main character uses a cell phone to light his way in one scene and he mentions computer generated artwork. Any thoughts?
