- Set in Scotland but filmed in Luxemborg.
The piece that Megan plays on the piano halfway through the film is Debussy's "Clair de Lune", roughly translatable as "moonbeam". The link is obvious, but is possibly also a nod to An American Werewolf in London (1981), the soundtrack of which consisted purely of songs with "moon" in the title.
One of the soldiers in this movie is called Bruce Campbell, a reference to The Evil Dead (1981) (Bruce Campbell is the actor who portrayed its hero Ash and the film seems to have partially inspired the plot of Dog Soldiers (2002)).
Near the start of the film, they discover the tracking chip in their radio and someone mentions the Kobayashi Maru scenario, originally in Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan (1982).
The G3 rifle used by Spoon and later Terry didn't work properly when firing blanks. During some scenes in the house, you can see Terry manually working the bolt to chamber the next round.
