- During the second segment, "The Raft", Laverne is wearing a shirt from 'Horlicks University', the same university stenciled on the crate from the original Creepshow.
At the beginning of the final segment, "The Hitch-Hiker", several Stephen King novels are visible in the bedroom, on the headboard of the bed.
Deke and Randy call each other by the nicknames "Poncho" (Randy) and "Cisco" (Deke). These two character names are borrowed from "The Cisco Kid", the TV show playing in the background during the film's first story, "Old Chief Wood'nhead".
Although the film consists of only three short horror stories - and the wrap-around animation story, there were, just like the original 'Creepshow', originally five stories written. One of these, "The Cat From Hell", was later used in the the similar anthology film "Tales From The Darkside: The Movie", released in 1990, and directed by the original Creepshow's composer, John Harrison. The other story originally intended to be in Creepshow 2 was the Stephen King short story, "Pinfall", about ghostly rival bowling teams.
'David Holbrook' appears in Segment "Old Chief Wood'nhead". His father Hal Holbrook starred in the original Creepshow (1982).
