The very last shot in the movie was supervised by sound operator Michael Tiedkte since the director, Jarno Lee Vinsencius had to return their rented vehicle in order to stay out of the hefty late fees.

The long take in the forest at night where David reveals the main plot to Melissa was scheduled to be a hand held continues moving shot. After three takes the director Jarno Lee Vinsencius decided to put it on a tripod since he wasn't happy about the jerkiness of the picture due to no stabilizer available.

The director Jarno Lee Vinsencius financed the whole project without any funds or means from the government.

The director/producer Jarno Lee Vinsencius rented a whole motel called Linderöds Motel for the production. When the final bill was due, Jarno struck a deal with the owner and paid half the bill by submitting his old BMW in order to cover the expenses for the accommodation of the cast and crew.
