In an interview with Jason Guerrasio, Jordan Peele said that the decision to film the movie in Fairhope and Mobile, Alabama, came at the very last minute, and was necessitated by budget cuts. "We were going to shoot this movie here in Los Angeles until about a month before we were set to shoot, and then I got a call saying we had to figure out someplace else for tax reasons. [It was a] gigantic curveball, and a real lesson that sometimes blessings come in strange packages. Because I think the movie is what it's meant to be. I think it might be a better movie than we would've done in here in LA. Also just a big lesson that you can get past the insurmountable." See more »
When Rose's car hits the deer, the deer is moving from left to right, so it would seem the driver's side would be damaged. However, the deer is leaping high in the air at the point of impact and hits the front passenger side, thereby causing damage on that side. See more »

Fantastic! I would not call it "horror" but certainly "thriller" with some comedy thrown into it. This Jordan Peele fellow has managed to bring something new to this genre and I certainly hope he'll do more thrillers.
The cast is great and I especially enjoyed Betty Gabriels performance. Lots of faces I have never seen before and they all did a stellar job. And those faces I have seen before did a stellar job, too. =)
I do not know if the overall idea is new but the way it was presented and the way it was done feels very fresh.
