Character Error
In one scene, while Ryan and Elissa are kissing in his house, the girl in the basement hears them through a baby monitor, and decides to escape as a result. However, it doesn't make sense for Ryan to have set up the baby monitor so that only the girl in the basement can hear him, while he cannot hear her. It would make more sense for the two parts of the baby monitor to be switched so that he can hear her.

When Tyler is smashing Ryan's car he damages the driver's window and the front right headlight. However, later, when Elisa is driving the car up to Ryan's house there is no sign of any damage. When called to join a party after school by Tyler, Elissa is called by her mum. First, she holds the phone in her right hand but after a brief cut to Tyler she holds the phone in her left hand.

Jordan Hayes (who plays the waitress Ryan kidnaps) is credited as "Penn State Carrie Anne", even though the college ID that Elissa finds in the trash reveals her name is actually Peggy Jones.

Revealing Mistakes
Elisa's "phone" was actually an iPod touch (4th Gen).
Despite a negative response from critics, this horror movie was a commercial success, ranking No. 1 at the box office in its opening weekend.

Both Jennifer Lawrence and Nolan Gerard Funk have appeared in the X-Men film series: Lawrence in 'X-Men: First Class' and 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' as Mystique' and Funk in 'X2: X-Men United' as Captured X-Kid.

The project was originally announced in 2003 with Jonathan Mostow directing and Richard Kelly scripting.

Both Elisabeth Shue and Nolan Gerard Funk have appeared in the Hollow Man film series: Shue in 'Hollow Man' and Funk in 'Hollow Man II'.

Producer Aaron Ryder had Jennifer Lawrence read for the lead role based on her performance in Winter's Bone (2010).

The door to the room where 'Carrie Anne' is kept has a keyhole on the inside and a switch on the outside. Still, Ryan uses a key to get in and out

This film was shot in the 2-perf Techniscope format to provide a grainy image reminiscent of older horror films and to save money on film stock and processing. Despite this, 'Filmed in Panavision' is listed in the end credits.

The film's release was delayed by a year to allow The Hunger Games (2012) to be released and elevate Jennifer Lawrence into a star, with the hopes that it would make this film more successful.
