Bette Davis reportedly hated making this film. She was often bored on set, feeling she had nothing to do. She also thought her young co-star, Lynn-Holly Johnson, was a lousy actress - Davis was often heard to remark how much better Diane Lane would have been in the role!

The film is based on a book entitled "A Watcher In The Woods" by Florence Engel Randall, which was published in 1976.

The original version of the movie, as released into theaters (briefly, only one week in New York City) in 1980 had a whole different ending -some would say no ending at all.

It featured the appearance of the "Watcher" as a shiny alien creature looking like ripped plastic refuse sacks that picks up Jan and disappears into thin air, reuniting her later with Mrs Aylewood.
