* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Originally, the premise was similar to TheMatrix: Four college students discover that the world is being run by organic machines. The machines kill humans, harvesting their bodies to use as spare parts and erasing their existence. They lurk in the shadows and can be detected by children and animals. You can read the original script [[http://www.imsdb.com/scripts/They.html here.]] It's pretty creepy.

* CoincidentalBroadcast: Julia comes home and turns on the TV to hear a story about rolling blackouts in the city. She's just recently learned that the only thing that can keep her safe is the light.
** Actually, news of the upcoming possibility of blackouts has been present since before Julia even meet up with Billy. As well, there are flashes of power going out periodically outside of the news broadcasts. A previously-anticipated "disaster" being discussed by the news while said "disaster" is ongoing isn't very "coincidental".

''They'' (2002) is a horror movie [[DirectorDisplacement often thought]] to have been written, directed, or produced by Creator/WesCraven--who was, in fact, not involved with this movie at all except as a "presenter". It was actually directed by Robert Harmon, a man probably best known for having directed the original version of ''TheHitcher'', and [[TooManyCooksSpoilTheSoup written by upwards of ten different uncredited screenwriters]].

Typically a presenter is an executive producer, but Craven is not [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0283632/fullcredits credited as such.]] It would appear that WesCraven had [[VeryFalseAdvertising nothing to do with the actual creation of this film]].
