- The film is set for a U.K release on the 27th of September.
- Despite appearing as an American in many of her film roles, Samara Weaving is Australian.
- Seventeen different versions of Grace's wedding dress were created by costume designer Avery Plewes to show the progress of Grace's night and how her clothes correspond to her attitude.
- With the exception of Grace, Daniel and Becky, the rest of the Le Domas including Fitch and the butler Stevens were played by Canadians.
- The Le Domas family empire of board games is based on now-defunct game manufacturers Milton Bradley Company and Parker Brothers.
- Throughout the film, the drug-addicted Emilie is incapable of using weapons, leading to misses and accidental kills. Melanie Scrofano (Emilie) is best known for "Wynonna Earp (2016)" as the titular gunslinger with the ability to eliminate revenants from hell.
- (Cameo) Nat Faxon: As the voice of Justin, the vehicle security operator.
- The Pepper Box revolver wielded by Emilie has been the version of the gun weapon in the North American edition of the board game "Clue" since 1972. It was adopted by the European "Cluedo" edition in 1996.
- Le bail as the devil is just a re-ordering of the Hebrew name for the devil BELIAL.
- The masks the Le Domas family uses in the prologue are reminiscent of the masks used in the Twlight Zone episode The Masks (1964), where they are worn by members of a wealthy family.
- (Cameo) R. Christopher Murphy: Plays Joe Early in the How To Use Your Crossbow video.
- (Cameo) Guy Busick: Plays Richard Babbis in the How To Use Your Crossbow video.
- Grace's yellow Chuck Taylor sneakers were actually custom painted for the film, as Converse no longer makes that color.
- 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 ending is an homage to Heathers (1988) where the lead lights a cigarette while the school/house burns down.
- BODY COUNT: 15 (Charles, Clara, Tina, Dora, Stevens, Daniel, Becky, Aunt Helene, Fitch, Charity, Emilie, Gabe, Georgie, Tony, Alex).
- Alex isn't disabling the cameras to help Grace, but to help his family find her.
- The names Le Domas and Le Bail are anagrams of Asmodel and Belial of the Ars Goetia, respectively.
- The implication of the Le Domas family having a goat shed on their estate is due to said animal being a representation of the Devil.
- Six of the methods of murder available in the various editions of the board game "Clue" are used in the film. The Pepper Box Revolver is used by Emilie and her son Georgie, Grace strangles the butler Stevens, the ceremonial wine is poisoned, Aunt Helene decapitates a maid with an axe, a dagger is used for the sacrificial ceremony, and Grace hits Tony in the face with a lantern, like the candlestick.
- 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. LaBail 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. LaBail to reject their spouses, forcing them to stay. Mr. LaBail may have sensed that Grace's innocence and purity would lure Alex away from continuing the tradition and disown the family.
