* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: Averted. They went out of their way NOT to acknowledge that Kiefer Sutherland is the Caller, but when the movie came out to video and DVD, they slapped the actor's face and name on the cover front and center. This was probably due to his role on ''Series/TwentyFour'' both times.
** At the same time, it was pretty hard to hide who was playing the Caller in any case, as Kiefer Sutherland has a very distinctive voice.
** Still, having the obvious villain's face on the cover in a film where the major fake-out is that the killer is staged is kind of a giveaway.
