More Movie Taglines:
- A comic tale of horror and seduction.
- Maximillian: [Julius is afraid that Maximillian wants to feed on him. Max pulls a bit of Tony the gangster out of his teeth] "I just had Italian."
Maximillian: [after being shot] Interesting. I've been stabbed, and I've been hanged, and I've been burned. Even broken on the rack once, but I've never been shot before. Kind of itches a little!
Silas Green: Who's driving this vessel? Stevie fucking Wonde
Detective Justice: So you say you saw... what? Silas Green: It was a wolf godammit! A big black stinking ass wolf. The motherfucker jumped of the boat and ran over there. And when it got there the son of a bitch turned into a man. He did the flippflopp shit on me... Just like whore i used to know in Detroit back in -62. I'd go over her house on saturday night... she loved me, man. I'd come through the door, she's a man! Flippfloppin' and shit. You ever seen a motherfucker flippflopp on you and shit like that? In your face trying to flippflopp and shit! Detective Justice: So the wolf you saw looked something like that? Silas Green: the wolf? Hell no! That's a chihuahua compared to the motherfucker come at me!
Policeman with dog: You people are ought to stay back! Killer here loves to bite! Maximillian: So do I!
- John Witherspoon's character Silas says "Bang, bang, bang" when referring to sex, just like Witherspoon's character did in Boomerang (1992), another movie starring Eddie Murphy.
Sonja Davis, who was Angela Bassett's stuntwoman, was killed in an accident on the film set in 1994.
On "The Directors" (2007), Wes Craven suggested that Eddie Murphy ignored his requests to play the character vulnerable and instead felt compelled to showcase his comedic talents.
The film was Eddie Murphy's last for Paramount under his exclusive contract with the studio.
Wes Craven has stated that he doesn't care for this film, particularly because he felt he an Eddie Murphy wanted to make different films. Both were very excited to work together, with just one problem: Comedic actor Murphy wanted to make a horror film and horror director Craven wanted to direct a comedy.
