More Movie Taglines:
- [Ken McClure pursues the ghoul into his bier] Egan (mortician): For goodness sake, whatever you do, don't mar the coffin!
- Evelyn Ankers hoped to do her own singing for the film, but because of the tight production schedule producer Ben Pivar used stock recordings of Lillian Cornell for the scenes in which Ankers' character sings (and the songs are obviously older recordings since their sound quality is inferior to the rest of the soundtrack).
"The Mad Ghoul" was the last film of director James P. Hogan, who died after finishing the film but over a month before it was released.
