Another thing I noticed about this film was the music. Efterklang is the band that Mr. Zagar chose to use, and they were an excellent choice. This is what he had to say about them: "I found Efterklang while searching online for ambient music about three years ago and after putting their music in the film I knew right away it would have to stay. In fact, the scene in which Kloy Gyn appears is still my producer Jeremy's favorite in the whole film."
