- The film is based on actual events that occurred between November 1966 and December 1967 in Point Pleasant, West Virginia.
The name of the expert on paranormal activity is Leek, the reverse of paranormal expert and author of the novel that the film was based on, John A. Keel.
Director Cameo: [Mark Pellington] the bartender, also the voice of Indrid Cold during the phone call.
The studio cut $2 million out of the film's budget just days before shooting began. Director Mark Pellington was furious, having vowed not to make the same concessions that plagued his previous film Arlington Road (1999).
The scene where Indrid Cold is seen for the first time in full wasn't done with CG graphics. Bill Laing was simply shot in blurred vision
