Movie Trivia:
  • This was the first feature film produced by distributor New Line Cinema.
  • The first film directed by Jack Sholder.
  • While writing the screenplay for Alone in the Dark, Jack Sholder was inspired by the writings of R.D. Lang, who theorized that 'psychotics' were actually people having difficulty adapting to an already psychotic world. The character of Dr. Leo Bain was suppose to be something of a parody of Lang.
  • Ironically the house that was used for Dr. Potters home in the film actually did belong to a psychiatrist.
  • Jack Sholder's original idea for the film was to have the story be about mental patients escaping during a blackout in NYC and the mafia being used to stop them. Due to the low budget it was re-envisioned to take place on a smaller scale outside of New York.
