Trivia: When Kate shouts "I'm not your f*****g mommy" to Esther, this is the same final dialogue of interaction between the antagonist and protagonist as in "The Ring 2".

Trivia: In a real life case strikingly similar to the plot of this film, it was revealed in October 2019 that an Indiana couple in 2010 had adopted what they believed to be an 8-year-old Ukranian girl whom they later discovered to be a sociopathic young adult with a form of dwarfism, whose age they estimated to be anywhere from 16 to 30.

Continuity mistake: When Esther is in her room and you are seeing that she is not a little girl but in fact an adult, she takes her teeth out. They're the nice teeth covering her bad ones. However when she sets them down, you can see that they are the wrong teeth. She has taken her bad prop teeth out and set them down, when it should have been the nice ones. You can see right before she takes them out that her teeth look nice. When she sets them down they are the bad set.

Esther: I think people should always try to take the bad things that happen to them in their lives, and turn them into something good. Don't you?

Question: Can someone verify the number of gunshots fired by Esther at the end of the film? I thought I counted 7 and I assume a revolver has only 6 bullets in the cylinder.

Answer: The scene when Esther takes 4 bullets out of the gun and asks Max if she wants to play shows that the gun has a 5 bullet capacity. Esther fired 1 bullet at Kate's shoulder, 1 at a glass when Kate was on top of the glass roof and 3 other bullets at Max. At the end of the movie Max fires an extra bullet.
