When asked in an interview about filming the scene where India Eisley, playing his daughter, takes off all her clothes in front of him, Jason Isaacs said: "I liked playing scenes with India when she was (her character) Airam. Just because it's a father's worst nightmare that their daughter is suddenly aggressively sexual and confrontational. You're used to having a certain status and parental authority. It's shakey anyway in the real world, but in our grotesque movie world it's even shakier and I loved it because it was so unsettling." See more »
The movie appears to take place in upstate New York (licence plates on cars are New York state, as well as some other American references); however, around 21:30 when Maria walks across the road you can clearly see her walking toward a Canada Post mailbox with a "University of Manitoba" sign above it.

A surprisingly well done low budget psycho-thriller
Novice (only his 2nd full length film) director, writer and producer Assaf Bernstein did a fantastic job with this film. Outstanding directing and cinematography, perfect score, and great acting by all cast especially India Eisley in her double role. Sure this story has been done before in many different ways, but I still enjoyed the constant thrill and tension throughout - even during the predictable scenes. The set locations (home and school) were great as was the winter scenery. I felt the length was too long for the pacing, and should have been edited down from 103 mins to 80-90 mins. Otherwise a great low budget production by Assaf Bernstein. A well deserved 8/10 from me.
