The film’s Director, Ti West talked about different kinds of paranormal phenomena: spontaneously turn on and off the TV, opened and closed door, burst light bulbs, and, in addition, the entire crew are regularly seen strange and very vivid dreams.
Even more surprisingly, the number that appears in the film as “damn”, was chosen by the Director only due to the fact that the review frame with motion managed to shoot one take it.
