Movie Quote(s):
  • Roz Allardyce: God when it comes alive - tell them, Brother. Tell them what it's like in the summer. Arnold Allardyce: Well they'd never believe it - it's beyond *anything* that you have you *ever* seen in your life. Roz Allardyce: There are centuries in this room, Mrs. Rolf... there are years, years in this house. Arnold Allardyce: Oh yes, and this house will be here long, long after you have departed. You'll believe me.
  • Marian Rolf: I've been waiting for you, Ben!
  • David Rolf: I hate this place! I want to get of here. I HATE IT!
  • Roz Allardyce: The house takes care of itself.
Movie Trivia:
  • In his DVD commentary, director Dan Curtis explains that he dropped an entire 15-minute opening with the family in New York, seeing the ad about the house in the paper and Ben getting a parking ticket, because it was "boring".
  • Karen Black was four months pregnant during the shoot, and explains that her belly was concealed with some clever wardrobe tactics.
  • The shot where the vines seize Oliver Reed's legs during the escape attempt were actually done in reverse. The vines were originally unwrapped from the legs and dragged off, but in reverse the vines appear to grab his legs.
  • Director Dan Curtiss cameos as one of the pictures seen sitting among Mrs. Allardyce's photograph collection.
  • The haunting flashbacks that Ben Rolf has about the creepy chauffeur were based off of an actual childhood experience of Dan Curtis. Curtis recalled as a young child being at his mothers funeral and seeing a chauffeur laughing outside of the funeral parlor which disturbed him deeply. He wrote the memory into the film and the chauffeur became a most eerie character.
