More Movie Taglines:
- Every corner of the soul is lost to the icy clutch of the supernatural!
- Leandro frequently having a sucker in his mouth was a trait added by Telly Savalas. Savalas had recently quit smoking and used the suckers as an alternative. The suckers would become a popular character trait on his American television series "Kojak" (1973) which started that same year.
Director Mario Bava had reportedly wanted to do this movie for years. After the huge international success of Gli orrori del castello di Norimberga (1972) (U.S. title: "Baron Blood"), producer Alfredo Leone gave Bava free reign to do any project he wanted.
Lisa's friend was played by Kathy Leone, the daughter of producer Alfredo Leone. It was her only film role.
Anthony Perkins was offered the role of Max, but Perkins turned it down.
The scene where Leandro breaks the corpse's feet to stuff it into the coffin is a reference to the H.P. Lovecraft story "In the Vault".
