Hubcap .. that's the way I understood it as well, and that's my greatest objection to the premise of the movie. They try and insulate themselves from harm from the outside world ... but he allows his daughter to go blind ?? I don't buy it.

As an aside ... my favourite of his movies is Unbreakable. Sure Sixth Sense had the geatest surprise value, but Unbreakable is more rewatchable.

Exactly my thoughts. I don't usually guess endings but I had the feeling around the first third of the movie that it was in the present, I was assuming the "monsters" were modern man.

I was disappointed in this movie. Glad I bought it used. Anyone wants to see it feel free to offer a trade. Not a keeper for me.

I guess my advice would be to watch this film with an open mind and not try to figure anything out. I was completely shocked by both of the twists and I probably could have figured them out if I had wanted to, but the point is that I didn't want to figure it out. Just go along for the ride. I think this was one of the 10 Best Films of the Year, but that's my opinion.

You got to be kidding me, someone who actually stays awake or even like "The Village" needs to go to the movies more often, predictable, boring, naive and most of all waste of time and money.

Stay far far far away from this "film"

Oh give me a break. This film was not nearly as bad as everyone makes it out to be. It was a refreshing change from most of the absolute dreck that fills the screens in the summer months. I thoroughly enjoyed this film and will be purchasing it soon.

I enjoyed this film, despite what most say about the ending. Although you could almost expect it, you can't tell me you didn't think "Whoa!" for a moment before deciding it sukked.
