Question: Near the end of the film, when Sarah dies, where did all the blood come from? Did she hit her head when she fell after the demon was driven out? If so, why did it take so long to start gushing?

Chosen answer: Yes. It may have taken so long because the blood was probably pooling at the back of her head, which caused her to pass out, then finally built up enough pressure to gush out of the cut or fracture at the back of her head.

Question: Cordelia was controlled by Jasmine, Cordelia controlled the Beast who brought the rain of fire and blotted out the sun, they also brought Angelus back and released him. All of this probably caused many deaths and made terror overtake the city. But Jasmine was nice and kind and tried to make the world happier. So what was the point of Jasmine's plan to bring the Beast and Angelus? It makes no sense.

Answer: The beast was used to obtain artifacts and rituals needed to bring Jasmine Into the world. Jasmine didn't want or need Angelus - he was just a bonus killing machine to keep Angel's gang busy. Angel's gang summoned Angelus because he knew about the beast.

Question: The theme in the trailer is also in the Double Team trailer and various other trailer. What's the name of the theme?

Answer: The trailers for Face/Off and Double Team don't seem to have any music in common - they must just sound rather similar. The most likely candidate for the theme you're referring to is "POW" by the Music Junkies, which has been used in trailers for four different films, including Face/Off.

Question: What is Michael Myers' curse, and why does it involve him killing his relatives?

Answer: The other answer is based on a novel and not on the film itself. According to this film (and the alternative Producer's Cut), the curse of Thorn is an ancient druid curse that must be fulfilled - a chosen one is picked from every "tribe", and made into an almost superhuman figure. This chosen one will then be forever compelled to sacrifice and kill-off his or her own family on the night of Samhain (aka, Halloween night) every year until the curse is either stopped or passed onto another.

Answer: I read the movie tie in book after the first Halloween came out. As I remember it, a boy with a crippled leg was in love with his own sister. During the Samhain (harvest end/halloween) festival, he killed his sister and her soon to be husband with a knife. The tribe tore him apart, and the chieftain cursed his soul to forever repeat his crime forever, etc. The book or following books in the series described Michael Myers' grandfather or great-grandfather losing his mind at a dance and killing a dancing couple. Every other generation or so the soul takes over a decendant, leaving enough people alive to continue the curse.

Question: After seeing the directors cut (I haven't seen the theatrical) we know that Evans mother has two still births, could this be Evans brothers who have lived similar lives to Evan, made the same choices, come to the same conclusions, travelled back to the womb and killed themselves?

Answer: Yes, it is in fact two brothers of Evan's. They travelled back and killed themselves the same way Evan did. This is explained in the Director's Cut DVD commentary by the writers.

Question: While Ricky Tan is talking to Lee on the boat Hu Li comes in. She says something in Chinese and shoots him. What is the translation of what she said?

Question: How did the ancient predator see the mark on Lex's face when predators can only see in infrared?

Answer: It is possible with their infrared vision which shows body heat that the burn from the blood was in fact hotter, which allowed it to be seen more visibly to the commander.

He didn't have a mask on at the time.

Predators can see infa red without masks. The masks give them other vision.

Question: While in John Doe's apartment Mills looks at something and says Victor's name. What was he looking at?

Question: What is the name of the song playing in the background when Paige invites Eddie to her house for Thanksgiving?

Answer: When you watch the DVD with the subtitles, it says that the song playing is "Everybody Wants You", written and performed by Josh Kelley.

Question: In the easter eggs it says that you can find out what is in the un-opened FedEx package. I don't have the DVD, but what's in the package?

Answer: According to imdb.com, "Robert Zemeckis was asked at a Q&A session at USC what was in the unopened packaged. He replied that it was a waterproof, solar-powered, satellite phone."

T Poston

Of course this is just a joke and one that had to be made, but not taken seriously. Had it been a satellite phone and he opened it, there would not be much of a movie plot left.

Question: OK I'm gonna be dumb and ask, what on earth is Franck's nationality and accent?

Answer: Martin short once claimed in an interview that Franck is just a combination of several different nationalities that he combined for the character. Like Bronson Pinchot in Beverly Hills Cop, part of the humour is not knowing where he came from.

Gavin Jackson

Question: Theoden says 'where was Gondor when the West Wall fell?' What is the West Wall and where is it?

Question: What is Sam's line at the end of the movie just before Frodo asks "what are we holding onto?" It was something about "How can the world go back to the way it was . . ." or something. Please list THE ENTIRE LINE. Thanks.

Answer: I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened. But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something. Even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back only they didn't. Because they were holding on to something.

Question: In Spider-Man 2, Scott Spiegel makes an appearance as a man trying to steal a piece of pizza. Does anyone know what role he has in this movie?

Question: What is the melody that Frau Blucher plays to calm down the monster?

Answer: It's called "Transylvanian Lullaby" (as they tell you in the film) and was composed for the movie.

Myridon

Question: In the end, if it wasn't Becks, then was that Posh, or one of her doubles?

Question: The theme in the trailer is heard in other various trailers for example Men of Honor. What's the name of the theme?

Question: Near the end when Sally is in the circle with Gilly, there is a series of flashbacks. There is a shot of a woman with curly shoulder length hair surrounded by white. Who is she? She's not their mother as she has long straight hair.

Answer: She is the one from the opening sequence, their "great, great, great" grandmother who started the whole "curse" thing.

Bruce Minnick
