Dana's motel room has a door with a lock requiring a magnetic stripe key card. While the magnetic stripe concept has existed since 1960, it would be extremely unlikely to see a motel with such a lock before the late-1990s. See more »
I saw that pain on your face and I just - I understood it. I felt an overwhelming feeling of love for you, because I knew that I would never again feel sorry for myself ever again.

If you have nothing else to chose, watch it. The Box is, debatably, the best 5.9 or less out of 10 movie. Once a movie is below 6, chances are, it's not good. However, this movie is creepy, strange, intriguing, has a jump scare (!), and makes you think. I had to finish it because I wanted answers. There are countless movies that I have felt forced to finish out of necessity to have questions answered, and been disappointed. This is a movie I was forced to finish, and while not thrilled with the conclusion, certainly still felt satisfied for having finished it. It's one of those rare movies you will probably not love, but will gladly rewatch it if somebody asks.
