Movie Quote(s):
  • Nix: I was born to murder the world.
  • Loomis: What's the story? Was the kid really possessed? Harry D'Amour: Probably. Loomis: You gonna tell me by what? Harry D'Amour: Oh, you know, the usual.
  • Exorcised Boy: Taste the darkness, D'Amour, it's been waiting for you.
  • Butterfield: You ever watched a man die? If you watch very closely, you can sometimes see the soul escaping. And if you're very quick, you can catch it.
  • Butterfield: A lot of people believed in Nix. They haven't forgotten his promise. Ray Miller: About...? Butterfield: Death. Ray Miller: What about death? Butterfield: It's an illusion.
Movie Trivia:
  • The scene with Swann (Kevin O'Connor) biting his finger and pouring his blood on the screws in order to drill the mask into Nix's head was excised from the original cut in order to obtain an R-rating from the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA). The scene was later reused for the unrated director's cut edition of the film.
  • The scene with Nix getting inside Swann's head in the cultist compound was excised and never used for the theatrical version of the film, on the grounds that it slowed the pacing of the story. It was later inserted into the unrated director's cut.
  • When casting for the film began, Clive Barker picked Famke Janssen's photo out of the hundreds of initial submissions and declared, "This is Dorothea." She remained the only choice, although the filmmakers auditioned dozens of actresses for the part.
  • The tattoo on D'Amour's back was included after Scott Bakula researched the character.
  • There is a partially obscured inscription around the ceiling of the Magic Club's Library. In full, it reads "Magic is the oldest trick in the book".
