The bird-shaped cane that Cassidy grabs for a weapon in one scene is a homage to the original The House on Sorority Row, as it's the same style cane that Mrs. Slater carries in that film.

In August 2009, the British Board of Film Classification originally classified this film as '18', meaning that no one in the UK under 18 years of age would be able to see it. E1 Films (the UK distributor) asked the BBFC to reconsider, and in a rare move, it decided to pass the film uncut at the lower '15' category instead.

The film shares a great deal many similarities with the 2006 slasher horror film Black Christmas (2006). Both serve as a late 2000's horror remakes, both cover sorority girls as the targets of a homicidal, cleverly concealed killer. Both feature a spectacle wearing sorority sister target (Rumer Willis' Ellie in this feature and Kathleen Kole's Eve Agnew in Glen Morgan's Black Christmas), both feature a cheating Kyle character (this film's being Matt Lanter's Kyle Tyson and Black Christmas' being Oliver Hudson's character Kyle Autry), a female protagonist devoted to the concept of the sorority sisters being an actual surrogate family to some extent, A female character who is not a sorority sister but a target of the killer scrambling to find the truth behind the disappearance of their actual sister who serves as a sorority sister, One distinctive center target on the body in each execution (this film's being a oral fixation with all the female victims sustaining blunt force to the mouth and Black Christmas' being an ocular fixation with blunt force to the eye region), both also feature a housemother devoted to her sorority girl chargers who meets at a demise by impalement and is spared being dispatched in the same fixated fashion as her charges and both featuring an alcohol boozing sister who meets a demise whilst lying down (in this case Margo Harshman's Chugs who has a wine bottle rammed down her throat and in Black Christmas Crystal Lowe's Lauren Hannon who has both her eyes ripped out whilst lying down in bed asleep.
