- Paul Gallier: I didn't think you were ready, but you are. I knew it when I saw you with HIM. Irena Gallier: Who? Oliver? Paul Gallier: You want to fuck him, don't you? You dream about fucking him! Your whole body burns, it burns all along your nerves, in your mouth, your breasts... you go wet between your legs. Irena Gallier: Stop it! Paul Gallier: Every time it happens... you tell yourself it's love. But it isn't. It's blood. And death. You can't escape your nightmare without me, and I can't escape my nightmare without you. I've waited a long time for you.
- By his own admission, director Paul Schrader says that one day he got so stoned on set that he refused to come out of his trailer. A whole day's filming was lost.
The director liked Frankie Faison's performance as "Det. Brandt" but in editing didn't feel his voice worked, so it was dubbed by that of African American actor Albert Hall.
On Oliver's nightstand there's a copy of the book "Mishima: A Biography." Director Paul Schrader would a few years later go on to direct qv_ Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters (1985)_ based in part on that biography.
