'The Similars' trivia and fun facts

Welcome to the 60's First film in Mexico and Latinamerica that was shot with the new Red Camera sensor (the Red Epic DRAGON) although, since this camera would give great quality and sharpness to the image but the film is a period piece and takes place in the 60's, Director of Photography Isi Sarfati decided to use a lot of filters to make the image look like something out of a 60's film, as director Isaac Ezban had envisioned.
The origin of everything There's a small Easter egg at the end of the film that explains the origins of the incidents from "The Incident" (director Isaac Ezban's previous feature film), and unites the universe and mythology of both films.
An unique film Used make-up and special effects techniques never before done in Mexico.
Influences Some of the main influences for writer and director Isaac Ezban to create this story included the B-Movies of the 50's and 60's, the work of authors like Rod Serling, Richard Matheson, Philip K. Dick, Michael Crichton and Stephen King, TV shows like 'The Twilight Zone', 'The Outer Limits' and "Fringe', and movies like John Carpenter's 'The Thing', Richard Kelly's 'The Box', Wachowski Brothers and Tom Tykwer's 'Cloud Atlas', James Mangold's 'Identity' and Philip Kaufman's 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers'.
