Camilla Belle almost turned down the role of Jill due to her personal dislike for horror films. Simon West convinced her that he was going for a more psychological thriller, so she agreed to do the movie. She had to turn down a role in another horror remake Black Christmas (2006) due to commitments to this film.
Jill Johnson: Mandrakis Residence.

After tracing the call, Officer Burroughs tells Jill the calls are coming from inside the house. When Jill drops the phone, you can see the picture of the wallpaper and 'Handset 2' on the screen with Burroughs still talking in the close shot of the phone. This would not appear if the phone was still on the line.
