** A tie-in book reveals concept art for other monsters that weren't used. They include an {{Expy}} of Film/CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon, a monster made of seaweed, a ThreateningShark, a zombie Native American hunter, a pirate and several alien monsters. Another book mentions creatures representing real-world fears - such as a vagina-toothed woman, a dog-headed alligator, a Minotaur, a giant [[HairRaisingHare rabbit]], a three-headed baby, a group of [[MagmaMan lava people]] and the freakiest of all - a woman with snakes for pubic hair.

** In both this film and ''{{Film/Paul}}'', Sigourney Weaver plays the head of an evil organization hiding an otherworldly secret from humanity; she appears only by voice until the very end of the movie, when she presents herself and [[spoiler:tries to kill the protagonists, only to be killed herself]]. (then again, both serve as a CastingGag, inverting [[Film/{{Alien}} her most famous role]] of someone who gets screwed by a MegaCorp's questionable decisions)

* DirectorDisplacement: Poor, poor Drew Goddard. No recognition for writing ''Film/{{Cloverfield}}'' due to it being directed by J.J. Abrams, then no recognition for co-writing and directing this due to Whedon being a co-writer...it was his first directing gig too!

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The various ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'' characters are present because there was supposed to be special [=L4D=] downloadable content based on the film. The deal fell through, but the characters didn't seem out of place, so it was easier to keep them in.

** The studio wanted the office celebration scene cut down. Drew Goddard was so upset by this and couldn't bring himself to do it, that Joss Whedon phoned the studio to inform them they would not.
* WordOfGod: 'Kevin' listed on the board is described by Drew Goddard as a seemingly nice guy "who looks like he might work at Best Buy" - who then dismembers people.
