On the night of his burial in a crypt, Julie is to spend the night there as part of an initiation rite, supervised by two other girls. The crypt becomes a scene of horror as Raymar returns to life and deploys his horrifying telekinetic powers, with coffins sliding out and splintering open to release decaying bodies on Raymar's command.

- The late Dominique Dunne auditioned for the lead role.
Actually written and filmed before Poltergeist (1982), but due to problems during post-production, the film wasn't released until after Poltergeist so that it suffered from the inevitable comparisons. Coincidently, Dominique Dunne, who auditioned for the role of Julie, later went on to star in Poltergeist.
Tom McLoughlin's hands were used as Raymar's.
Kitty's habit of chewing on a toothbrush was based on a mutual friend of Tom McLoughlin and Michael Hawes. They thought it was such an endearing character quirk that they put it in the film.
Adam West was not the first choice for Allan, but when the casting director told Tom McLoughlin that no one would hire West because he was so recognizable as Batman, he felt sympathy for his fellow actor and told them to put him in the movie.
