(at around 31 mins) After Darry comes back from the pipe and has scared Trish, just before it cuts to the next scene there is a shot of Trish next to the window, on the window you can see spots of rain falling onto it. In the next shot while the two characters are driving away however, it is not raining, and the windows are completely dry. See more »
Christ, do you think they even have a phone?
I'm guessing no phones and a lot of guns.

The creepy scared music of "Hush, Hush, Hush Here Comes the Bogey Man" plays throughout during the first half of the closing credits. See more »
On the German Code 2-DVD (Platinum Edition) by MAWA/VCL (and perhaps the VHS as well) you can't hear the screaming of Darry/Justin Long when the Creepers tortures him. The screaming has been removed on the dubbed versions. But you can hear it softly if you tune in to the audio commentary by the director (who also comments the screams). See more »
JUSTIN LONG and GINA PHILIPS are brother and sister returning home for spring break when they run into road rage and a monster who comes out of hiding after long hibernation to kill humans for body parts that keep him thriving.
It's a fairly suspenseful horror flick with the leads making the usual mistakes so that they can come into contact with the flesh eating monster who clearly is after one of them for a purpose not revealed until the end.
Long is amusing as the brother who has some good lines to say to his irritating sister as they squabble over how to approach the idea of hunting down a monster. His facial expression is mainly one of shock at finding dead bodies at the bottom of a barrel-shaped pipe and he keeps up the shocked look throughout most of the film.
There are some genuinely scary moments and a lot of silliness in the plotting which is pretty par for the course in these kind of thrillers. At least there's one saving grace: the director doesn't use the shaky camera movement or fast cutting to get his effects. He doesn't have to. The tale is chilling enough.
