The directors originally toyed with the idea of having the TV camera crew shadow some policemen. They decided to go with firemen instead as they tend to be more popular and accepted by the general public, especially following 9/11. See more »

I just liked the movie. That's all! I was alone in the movie theater, and after the movie, I went shopping to the supermarket, and I felt like everybody was strange, and moved strange. I was lucky it wasn't dark yet. The movie looks simple, but sure there is a script, and I like the humor in it, too. Next day, while having a shower, I started laughing thinking about some parts of the movie. The way the movie is recorded, it looks difficult to know how it will be possible for the movie to go on. But it gets on, and better! The fear increases because you do NOT see completely what it's happening. That's the tricky part: You (and the actors) know/don't know, see/don't see. The action and the images are not completely evident and clear. But it can be good for the movie. It's not Dawn of the Dead, it's different, but I also liked it a lot!
