- With the exception of the final unmasked shot, the role of the Prowler was played entirely by assistant director 'Peter Giuliano'.
Tom Savini considers this to be his best work.
Farley Granger was cast in the film because an investors wife happened to know him through an acting class she was taking.
Director Joseph Zito once told a guard at a movie theater, where the film was being screened, that he had made The Prowler. To this the guard responded 'you really DID kill those people, right?!'.
The house used for Major Chatham's house was actually a museum. The furniture in the house was all antique and the owners would only allow a skeleton crew to shoot inside the location.
