* FollowTheLeader: The film came at a time just before the superhero boon, several months after ''Film/XMen1'' but before ''Film/SpiderMan1'' kicked it into gear. With all the talk of superheroes and superpowers, this film ended up being a cornerstone of the concept of "real life superpowers" in various documentaries, including ''Stan Lee's Superhumans''.

** After the release of ''Film/{{Split}}'', Shyamalan said that the idea of Kevin with a SplitPersonality creating a SuperpoweredEvilSide originated from the early drafts of ''Unbreakable'', where his story would mirror that of David. But he could never make the character work within the confines of the movie and eventually dropped the character altogether, replacing him with the janitor in the orange jumpsuit for David to face against at the end of the film. [[spoiler: ''Film/{{Split}}'' reveals itself to be a StealthSequel to this movie]], making it something of a DevelopmentGag.

** Another flashback scene with Elijah had him as a child being injured on a carnival ride. Due to the number of extras and being a period piece, it was actually one of the more expensive scenes to shoot. Removed for putting the main story on hold.
** A lunch date between Audrey and David was filmed, with Audrey inviting him by calling the house phone and playing it up as a first date. A friend of Audrey sees them and mistakes David for a lawyer [[YourCheatingHeart Audrey was apparently talking about]], ruining the mood. Removed for not fitting in the narrative in a natural way.

** The Unbreakable Trilogy with parts two and three planned. Not being such a success, it remains a stand alone story. [[WordOfGod M. Night]] has said he is waiting for the right script and will ask [[Creator/TouchstonePictures Disney]] to make the sequel. [[spoiler: Now with the release of Film/{{Split}}, which is a StealthSequel to the film, it seems as if the trilogy will be completed, with the third film revolving around David Dunn tracking down Kevin Crumb/The Beast/The Horde.]]

Added DiffLines:

* DeletedScene: Shyamalan included a number of deleted scenes on the dvd along with intimate commentary on what the scene was for and why it was ultimately taken out.
** David has a ShowerOfAngst when he gets home from the hospital. It was felt to be too much too soon.
** A scene with a priest after a memorial for the victims of the train crash, where David asks him some questions and the priest bitterly says that his nephew was on the train and he is dealing with his own crisis of faith. Taken out primarily for technical reasons, Shyamalan wasn't happy with the cinematography.

** [[spoiler: The Unbreakable Trilogy may be going through some sort of resurgence, with ''Film/{{Split}}'' being a StealthSequel to this movie. In fact, the main antagonist, Kevin/The Horde, was originally intended for either this film in place of the Orange Man or an abandoned sequel and M. Night simply couldn't figure out how to introduce him.]].
