- Joel McHale and Bella Thorne also starred together in the 2014 film Blended.
- The Predator's premiere was at TIFF in Toronto in September 2018.
- The town in the film is named Salem. There are many parallels between the hysteria during Salem Witch Trials and the events in this film.
- After the hack, and the main four characters are at Em's place, as the camera pans up to the bedroom window, you hear the line "Dad. I didn't know your size, so I guessed." This is a reference to the movie Hackers (1995).
- Feature film debut of Abra and Hari Nef.
- Diamond wants to keep his sexual relationship with Bex a secret because she is a transgender woman. In real-life, Hari Nef, who plays Bex, is a transgender woman.
- Bella Thorne had to wear a blue wig for her role as Reagan.
- The little boy who accidentally witnesses Lily bashing a stalker's face in with a shovel is holding a green frog. This a reference to the infamous internet meme Pepe the Frog.
- Officer Richter becomes kind of a spokesperson for the hysterical mob and guardian of the anarchistic 'law', so his name is surely no coincidence: 'Richter' is German for judge.
- When the masked assailants torture Marty and force him to reveal the identity of the anonymous hacker, he accuses Lily of being the hacker since the source of the hacks came from her IP address. Although his accusation (of Lily) is false, he wasn't far off: Lily's younger brother, Donny, is revealed to be the actual hacker in the end.
