The makers of the movie are doing something a little different with the music that is going to be played in the movie. The makers have made a deal with
Tooth and Nail Records, the record company largely responsible for Christian rock, punk, hardcore, and other such bands and music. Exactly what kind of deal is not yet known, but chances are it will play some rather heavy Christian songs, or possibly just the music, in the movie. Also, there were rumors that some Christian metalsongs would be in the ending credits, but the movie ended up containing solely songs by the band Anberlin.Fact|date=August 2008
On a deserted back road in Alabama, Jack and Stephanie find themselves driving fast and running late. Their world suddenly changes when a strange accident leaves them stranded with no car, no cell phone coverage, and no help in sight. They have no choice except to continue on foot. As darkness approaches, they round a bend and see a small sign at the top of a long gravel driveway: The Wayside Inn. The exhausted couple stands in front of an inviting house, complete with gated stone wall, ancient oak trees, and a note welcoming weary travelers. Inside they find another couple with an equally troubling story about a similar accident. It seems that backwoods pranksters have made their day miserable. Still, they are safe … Or so they think.
