Tagline: Eli is 12 years old. She’s been 12 for over 200 years and, she just moved in next door.

Trivia: Several tricks were used to create the right sound effects for some of the gorier scenes. Biting into sausages was used to replicate biting into skin and flesh, and drinking yogurt was used to sound like drinking blood. The sound of the children blinking was made by the skin of a grape rubbing against each other in an almost ‘blinking’ motion.

Goofs: Anachronisms: As Oskar is looking in his clip book with old newspaper articles, a serial number used by the Swedish police is visible. That number ends with 95, which means that crime was committed in 1995. The movie, however, is set in 1982.
