More Movie Taglines:
- When the flies start to crawl, so will your flesh...
- If you dare to see it alone, make sure someone escorts you home.
- Some of the earlier cast considerations for the main role of Roberto Tobias were Terence Stamp, Michael York, Tom Courtenay, James Taylor and Ringo Starr.
Deep Purple was originally considered for the soundtrack.
Argento didn't want to use the "image caught in the retina" plot device since it was too fantastic for the giallo genre. But once Carlo Rimbaldi showed him how the effect would look like in the finished film, he soon changed his mind.
This was originally intended to be Argento's swan song to the giallo genre. This would later change once Five Days of Milan did poorly at the box-office.
It was Jean-Pierre Marielle's own idea to make his character gay.
