Goofs

When Aaron describes Judith’s death, he says that Michael sliced the base of her skull, scraping her spinal column. However, Michael actually stabbed Judith in the chest eight times.

When Aaron is pumping gas at the gas station, the display behind him is blank, revealing that no gas is actually being pumped.

The beginning of the film showed that Laurie has gates and a CCTV system, so Michael wouldn’t have been able to freely drive in the location

Trivia

The first day of production was the first time Jamie Lee Curtis and Malek Akkad had seen each other since the death of Moustapha Akkad. Jamie Lee Curtis said she cried as soon as she saw him.

One of the people responsible for helping to facilitate the pitch meeting between David Gordon Green & Danny Bride and Jamie Lee Curtis was Jamie Lee Curtis’ godson Jake Gyllenhaal.

Emma Roberts and Lucy Hale both personally met with David Gordon Green to talk about auditioning for the role of Allyson, but production decided to cast an unknown actress for the part.
