Afterlife - Death?

The latest Hollywood movie I saw was Afterlife, starring Justin Long and Christina Ricci as the main characters (it's actually played in Indonesia's theaters lately though the film itself launched in 2009).

Christina played as a disorientated girl who is so addicted to somekind of drug - aenesthetic maybe? - and without her drug, her life becomes miserable. This condition learned by Justin who played as Christina's boyfriend, made him more miserable. And in the day Justin decided to propose the girl, she suddenly had a dreadful car accident. She woke up in a corpse room and a pope told her that she had died in the car accident.

The girl didn't believe that she had died at first, but the pope tried his best to convince her so that she finally believed her own condition. Problem is, her boyfriend didn't accept his girl's death so he tried everything to find out. Well, whatever it was, the ending is really shocked - as we can expect from a horror/psychological thriller. Uhm..better find out yourself - No one likes spoiler.

What I can't accept from this movie is, why the pope taught his 'ability' to a primary school boy who had been devastated with his broken home-life? I think it won't be too late to change and keep our mind open, with all the positive attitude, of course. And this movie has a satire to tell about this pathetic fact. :/
Speaking of which, I find something interesting in this movie. It was the drug that injected by the pope to calm the girl down in the corpse room. The label said "Hydronium Bromide".

Well, I look it up in my text book and found nothing. And finally, after doing some search on the internet, they said the compound was fake! Yes, a fictious compound that makes the muscle inactive and caused inconciousness.

There is a compound which is likely to be what the film was meant to reffer to Hydronium Bromide. It's Hydrogen Bromide (hydrobromic acid). It is a strong acid with pKa a lil' bigger than Hydrogen Iodide, the most acidic halogenous acid. When solved in water, the compound becomes ionized as Hydronium ion and Bromium ion - hmm, that makes sense, right? The MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet - the most important guide for a chemist ^^) said the compound is toxic and corrosive. It has a colorless gass physical appearance in the room temperature and may cause suffocating when inhaled. Err..so the 'hydronium bromide' isn't likely 'hydrogen bromide' after all? It's irritating my curiousity you know. Well, enough said. Enjoy the film!:)
