The film was shot almost entirely handheld, and the cast supplied their own wardrobe. Because much of the production took place at night, the windows in the films primary location had to be digitally corrected to appear as though it were day. Peter Dorohas identical twin brother, Stephen Doroha, did all his stunts and was his stand-in on days when he couldnt be on set.
The film received an Official Selection at the 2014 Scare-a-Con Film Festival. It also screened at the 2014 Buffalo International Film Festival.
