During the final action scene, the constant shots of the sun rising clearly emphasize that it is dawn. Yet when the actors leave the burning house, their shadows are directly below them indicating that it is noon time.

When they are driving through the desert and Sean asks him to throw the beer can out, when he tosses it you can clearly see it is crumpled, but when it hits the cops car its still a smooth can and rolls right off the hood.

Quotes
Kit: Come to daddy, boys!

Nick: We are fucked. Take a look at the world we inherited. We're a bunch of fast-food munching MTV freaks humping the great Amercian Dream. The generation before us sold their innocence for 200 digitally enhanced satellite stations, and it's been downhill ever since. They had Mickey Mouse, Easy Rider and The Beatles. Alright? We got South Park, The Blair Bitch and Ricky Martin. Alright? They had "Be here now!". We got "Shit Happens!". If that doesn't put thinks in perspective, i dunno what does. I mean, we're just Microsoft Neanderthals addicted to surfing netland, still shitting in our nests. And every time i think about giving a rat's ass, i picture Monica making millions from sucking Bill's little red rooster. Just rockets me right back into reality.

Q
How does the movie end?
A
When they learn that Ina's house was built over an old graveyard on blessed ground, Nick and Sean decide to make it their stand against Kit and Cym (Phina Oruche). In the melee that follows, Nick is shot and Sean's leg is broken, but they manage to shoot off Cym's head. Just as it looks like Kit is going to get Sean, the rising sun streams through the window, frying Kit. A few days later, Sean and Megan ([link=]) are still in the hospital, although Megan is about to be discharged to go live with her aunt and uncle in Phoenix. Ina is okay, but doesn't remember anything about the vampires, which Sean thinks is probably all for the best. Nick has already checked out of the hospital but left a note for Sean saying, 'By the time you read this, I'll be on the road again. Yours and Megan's fight is over. Mine ain't. Turns out he wasn't the one I was looking for. Mine's still out there somewhere. But the way I figure it, if I can find one, I can find another. They might be bad mothers, but we're not talking brain surgeons. So anyways, thanks. It was cool hangin' with you. Maybe I'll see you again sometime.' In the final scene three months later, Nick is hitching in Colorado when a red Charger stops for him. It is Sean, headed for Denver and hot on the trail of the other Forsaken. As the two drive off together, Nick wonders if the owner of the Mercedes was pissed about the car. "Oh, yeah!" Sean exclaims.
