Diana: Keep the lights out. [lifts Rebecca into the air] Diana: I'm not being sent away again. If you don't stop, I'll show you where I put your father.
  • During the scene in in which Rebecca (Teresa Palmer) is listening the recording of a doctor talking about her mother, the doctor mentions that "She has a history of violence". Maria Bello, who plays Rebecca's mother, starred in the film A History of Violence (2005).
  • In the scene in which Martin and his mother have a movie night, the movie that they are watching is Auntie Mame (1958).
  • Teresa Palmer hadn't seen the design of Diana before filming, until she filmed her first scene with her on a completely dark set. This was an intentional directorial choice so as to provoke a genuine reaction of fear when first seeing the design. Alicia Vela-Bailey, the woman in the costume, was previously Palmer's stunt double on I Am Number Four (2011), it would have ruined the effect had she seen her prior as she would have recognized her therefore losing the authentic expression of fear.
  • Teresa Palmer had to use a wig in a few scenes. That's was because she had to dye her hair black for "Point Break"
  • Director David F. Sandberg revealed that in original test screenings, Diana returned after the Sophie's death to attack Rebecca, Bret, and Martin in a scene that occurred after the ambulance scene. After negative reaction, the scene was removed.
