Filming Locations:
In the first film, when Laine and Pete research Debbie's house online, the articles they find about the Zander family are dated 1952, the prequel takes place in 1967, which is fifteen years after the dates on the articles

The plot of the film is set in the 1960's as a prequel to the 2014 movie Ouija, the previous films stated that the supernatural events that killed Alice and Doris happened in the 40's or 50's.
The bottom left corner of the cover of the Ouija board mentions the word "Baltimore MD"

Annalise Basso and Kate Siegel reunite with Mike Flanagan, earlier they had worked on the movie Oculus, with Siegel also appearing in Hush

The movie marks the third collaboration between actresses Lin Shaye and Ele Keats, their earlier collaborations being - Insidious: Chapter 3 and video game, Code Blue

Every 20 minutes or so the "black dot" appears in the upper right corner of the frame, which used to signal a change of reels for film projected

The film was shot digitally, but director and editor Mike Flanagan, in order to add a retro feel to the film, added some nice touches in post-production to give the appearance of a movie shot on film

The mirror from the 2013 movie Oculus can be seen in the basement corner

The stitch-mouthed ghost character "Doris" from the original is portrayed as a living girl by Lulu Wilson and her mother is now played by Elizabeth Reaser

Lin Shaye's character from the first film, Paulina Zander, is being potrayed by Annalise Basso in this film as a teenager
