The snow storm seen in the film was completely unexpected, as the filmmakers were unaware that it would happen. This is ironic considering that the first Urban Legend (1998) was originally intended to take place during the winter.

The sequence with Lisa (Jacinda Barrett), Trevor (Matthew Davis), and Toby (Anson Mount) at the bar shortly before her death was a reshoot. It was filmed several months after principal photography was completed. It was decided after the film was done, that a death scene needed to occur much earlier in the film to add a sense of danger. This is why the character is never mentioned before or after her appearance. Anson Mount had to wear a wig during this sequence, because he had cut his hair significantly since.
