  • Revised Ending: The original ending had a man rescuing first Lillith, then Emily, from the car. But as Lillith once more looks like a little girl, Emily is arrested and the last scene begging to know where Lillith is so she can warn the new foster family only for her disbelieving lawyer to have her committed to a mental institution. Cut to Lillith with a brand new foster family and the smile on her face as she prepares to use them...
  • The Shelf of Movie Languishment: The movie was filmed in 2006, but wasn't released in the U.S. until 2010.
  • Trailer Delay: The movie was already finished in 2007, but took almost three years for it to see release. As a result, the original trailer looks extremely dated, with a number of scenes that just don't appear.
