Aside from this creepy trailer, director Gil Kenan has shared a possibly scarier story with us thanks to a recent Reddit AMA session he took part in this week.
"The house that I rented during filming was straight-up legit haunted by a female spirit dressed in black. And I became aware of her within the first few days of staying in the house." he wrote, according to IGN. "And only after I left did I receive a call from the previous owner, who had moved back in, who was terrified by the goings on in the house, and wanted to see if I had experienced any of it. So it was an incredible real-life inspiration for filming that followed me home. Well, I mean, she definitely was there. It didn't follow me back to Los Angeles, but it followed me from set back to where I was sleeping during filming."
