When the principal character enters the sanitarium the words "Get them off me" can be heard coming from one of the cells. This is a reference to a lunatic (also imprisoned in an asylum) in Hellbound: Hellraiser II (1988), who carves himself up with a straight-razor because he suffers from a delusion that he is covered with bugs.

Filmmakers say that the man hanging on the jail bars when Kimberly walks into the insane asylum is put there to pay homage to Chief Bromden (Will Sampson) in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975). (imdb.com)
John Denver's "Rocky Mountain High", the song that accompanied most of the deaths in the original film, plays in the elevator that Eugene and Nora enter, and in the Dentist office. (imdb.com)

* * The police officer radios in an accident at mile marker 180 (the accident where the news van eventually blows up). Also when Kim is standing next to her SUV at the exit ramp just before the officer pulls her out of the way of a truck, she sees a road work sign "next 180 feet". These are references to flight 180 in the first movie.

Writers Eric Bress and J. Mackye Gruber came to write this movie after Benderspink entertainment read "The Butterfly Effect". The writer agreed to do this if the studio would let them direct it.
Real logs were tested for the crash sequence, but they "didn`t bounce enough", so in the film the logs are CGI.
Jonathan Cherry also auditioned for the part of Evan.
The character of Tim was supposed to be about seven, but New Line thought it would be too harsh to watch.
In order to film the massive pileup sequence, several miles of highway had to be closed down for several days.
Keegan Connor Tracy who plays Kat was cast just 5 days before filming.
The book Tim is reading is Stephen King`s "A Bag of Bones".
The school bus full of kids chanting "pile up" is from Mt. Abraham, the same school as all the victims from the first movie.
SPOILER: Alex was originally planned to have been killed by a flesh-eating virus.
SPOILER: The fire that kills Clear and Eugine was originally started by a birthday cake.
SPOILER: When Evan is in his kitchen before his death, he leans over to get something out of his fridge and you can see the letter magnets "HEYE" on the side of the fridge.

The letters left spell out the word "EYE," which foreshadows that Evan will die when he is impaled through the eye with a fire escape ladder.
SPOILER: When Evan first goes into his apartment before his death, you can see a baby doll on the floor that is missing an eye, foreshadowing his death.
