* DawsonCasting: Abbey Thickson, who played Wendi - the little girl who was abducted - was 13 when the movie was released, and playing a girl who seemed much younger.

to:

* ActorInspiredElement: Michael Ecklund suggested that Bobby wear Marilyn's nightgown in the final act.
* CreatorBreakdown: Subverted. Milo Ventimiglia's mother - whom he'd originally forbidden to see the movie - was afraid he'd suffered a traumatic experience she didn't know about because his performance was that disturbing.
* TheDanza: Michael Biehn as Mickey.

* DyeingForYourArt: Both Milo Ventimiglia and Michael Ecklund shaved their heads on camera.
* EnforcedMethodActing: To prepare for the animosity between everyone in Mickey's torture scene, Milo Ventimiglia spent the day screaming and shouting at the other actors. This had the result that Eva ends up yelling at Josh when she hadn't been down to in the script; because Lauren German was that LostInCharacter.
* OneTakeWonder: The haircutting scenes were done in one take.
* PlayingWithCharacterType: Milo Ventimiglia got fame for playing {{Nice Guy}}s in ''Series/GilmoreGirls'' and ''{{Series/Heroes}}''. Josh does start out like a seemingly normal and reasonable guy, his sanity goes and he ends up raping Marilyn regularly and becoming a full on antagonist. Sure enough, he was originally going to play Adrien, but asked to play a more villainous role for a change.
* RealLifeRelative: Michael Biehn's real wife (Jennifer Blanc-Biehn) is used for the pictures of Mickey's wife in the film.
* ThrowItIn: Bobby imitating the magic trick with [[spoiler: Mickey's cut-off finger]] was improvised by Michael Ecklund.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Originally titled 'The Shelter', it was then changed to 'Fallout' but then 'The Divide' to avoid confusion with [[SimilarlyNamedWorks the video game]].
** Mickey was more overtly racist in the first draft, but toned down to be an AntiVillain as time went on.

* HeyItsThatGuy:
** [[Film/{{Aliens}} Hicks]] is Mickey, the superintendent.
** One of the crazy ones is [[Series/{{Heroes}} Peter Petrelli]]
