While serving as executive producer, author Whitley Strieber, whose experiences serve as the basis of the film, expressed concerns about Christopher Walken's abilities in portraying him. When Strieber finally told Walken that he might be portraying him as a little too crazy, Walken replied, "If the shoe fits."
Whitley has a picture of "The Great Wave of Kanagawa" by Hokusai on his wall, with an added cartoon character, facing the tsunami with an exclamation mark above his head, drawn in for comic effect.
Anne Strieber is referring to Joseph Campbell's four-volume compendium of World Mythology with her "Masks of God" observation.
Whitley Strieber's Alien Contact books are usually cataloged as "Psychical Research" or "Paranormal". However, the cassette audio-book of Communion, read by 'Roddy McDowell' and produced by a Hertfordshire company called "Redback", simply has the word "FICTION" on the back of the inlay. This could have been a compromise to preserve the credibility of a start-up company and increase publicity for Strieber at the same time.
