Director Matt Reeves explained why a deleted scene, showing Abby (ChloĆ« Grace Moretz) being attacked as a human, was cut. (The scene was released on the Internet.) Contrary to the belief that the scene, depicting her being changed to a vampire and entering Owen’s mind, would be too intense for the viewers, Reeves stated that he felt the scene would have disturbed the flow of the film. He remarked that he wished it would have been able to make the final cut.

The film was fifth among the ten lowest-grossing releases of 2010 from major studios (movies released in over 1,500 theatres).
