The film was initially going to be released during the summertime on August 25, 2017, but it was pushed to December 1, 2017. Dimension Films then opted for a release date in time for Thanksgiving, debuting on November 22, 2017. Finally, three weeks before the release, Lantern Entertainment (previously known as The Weinstein Company)/Dimension Films put the movie on hold indefinitely due to the Harvey Weinstein scandal.

The Polaroid camera being used is an SX-70, which does not have a flash built in, nor makes the sound of a flash charging. The location of the flash from the camera on screen is actually a built in light meter on the camera. See more »
This is another movie that is difficult to rate because it is neither significantly good nor significantly bad. Start is worse than end, because only near the end we got good story, intro, explanation, details, insight. Unlike the 2nd half of the movie, 1st half was so bad, lacking explanation and with so predictable obvious common effects, making the whole movie look fake, not even showing the evil. I liked the end, emotional and facial expressions, and really did feel fear and sadness in few occurrences that character did too. Neither worst, nor best. Not worth watching more than once.
