    “Does anyone know if there is a second part to this film? Or maybe I have it mixed up with another. I seem to remember him and her arguing, then he starts sawing more stuff, including the walls of the house, she's running around screaming, "Toilet!, Toilet!" and at the end the dog says "That's it, i'm out of here, man. I'm going to Utah to start a UFO cult."” — Elhajhaj, 28 Jun 2013

    “It's "Hotel 10 KM" I don't think there's anything written on the scrabble bits that the man disintegrates into, though. Would likely have been rather overboard, sure - but that's what High Quality is for - DNA coding in videos. <_<” — AT1ST, 13 May 2010
