  • The names Le Domas and Le Bail are anagrams of Asmodel and Belial of the Ars Goetia, respectively.

  • The very end resembles the end of Heathers (1988).
  • (Cameo) James Vanderbilt: As Mr. LeBail when he appears before Grace in his chair.
  • It's heavily implied that Grace is rejected by Mr. Le Bail for two reasons: 1) Because her motive for marrying Alex was indeed love and not just money, Grace's soul would be more difficult to attain; it's also mentioned that both Charity and Fitch had no issue selling their souls in exchange for the material whereas Grace longed for a family. And 2) Helene draws comparison between herself and Alex - both resisting their destiny by trying to leave the family only for Mr. Le Bail to reject their spouses, forcing them to stay. Mr. Le Bail may have sensed that Grace's innocence and purity would lure Alex away from continuing the tradition and disown the family.
  • In this film, Samara Weaving plays someone running from devil worshipers who wish to sacrifice her. This is a reversal of her role in The Babysitter (2017) where she played a devil worshiper hunting someone to sacrifice.
  • The nail that goes through Grace's hand is CG, and they were worried about selling it until they watched Weaving's performance.
  • The goat that jumps out and scares Grace into falling down the well was originally planned as a puppet, but when they shot the first take of the puppet they realized that was a bad idea. "Thankfully the goat wranglers were so down."

  • They recall having a group conversation with the cast regarding all the times they've died in movies and TV, and Elyse Levesque (plays Charity) appears to have the record among them. None of the cast had ever exploded before, though, so this was a first for them all.
  • The MPAA requested they translate the Latin used during the sacrificial ceremony so they could properly rate the film.
  • The montage of the family preparing and donning their robes in the lead up to sacrificing Grace originally showed Daniel drinking more, but Brody wisely suggested a take where he goes the opposite direction and is clearly sobering up instead. That's the one they went with.
  • The cast and crew speculate as to what Grace does after the movie ends, and their guesses range from going on the honeymoon to being charged with murdering the entire family.
  • DIRECTOR_CAMEO(Matt Bettinelli-Olpin): As the voice of the driver of the sports car.
  • Towards the end of the movie, Fitch recalls a fire incident that killed a whole family, to which the Le Domas' patriarch says "that's what the media fed you". This brief passage foreshadows the fate of the family, as their house burns to the ground after they explode in the dawn.
