* DawsonCasting: In the original, high school student Jill Johnson is played by 27-year-old Carol Kane. It's surprisingly convincing.
* HeyItsThatVoice: In the remake, the voice of the Stranger is provided by none other than Creator/LanceHenriksen.
* RetroactiveRecognition: In the remake, you may have noticed [[Series/{{Glee}} Quinn Fabray]][=/=][[Film/{{Malavita}} Belle Manzoni]] (or [[Film/IAmNumberFour Sarah Hart]]).
** Also in the remake, [[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse Agent Coulson]] is Jill's dad.
** Coulson's not the only superhero in the remake, either. Tiffany is [[Series/{{Arrow}} the Black Canary]].
