In promotion for the opening weekend of this film, Director Terry Gilliam crashed the ticket line for The Daily Show (1996). He signed autographs, told jokes, and took photos with fans, holding a sign proclaiming (in jest): "Studio-less Film Maker, Family to Support, Will Direct for Food". He is quoted as saying, "This is the state of independent film making. You got to get out on the street and beg again. We have no shame anymore, just out on the streets hustling. The first weekend is everything, if it doesn't do well the first weekend, it dies."

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

The first morning Jeliza-Rose wakes up in the new house, in the lap of her dead father, she discovers ants in her hand. It may be a reference to an old Scandinavians proverb about having "ants in the hand", literally meaning "an urge to kill". This scene is the viewer's first clue that the father is dead.
