 3. Selma Blair plays the role of Cecile, a young, misguided freshman. However, did you know she is older than both Sarah Michelle Gellar and Ryan Philippe? Guess it’s the koala t-shirt that her Dad got her from Australia...

5. The licence plate of the taxi which kills Sebastian in the end changes during the shot from 3TI8 to 9X24. Oh dear.
