Effects artist Bob Keen spent 18 hours a day for 8 weeks working on the monsters in the film.
During the scene in the basement of the vampire's mansion, crew on the sets said that it was "The bloodiest thing ever put to the screen". Much of the gore in the scene was cut by the MPAA.
18 wax horror exhibits are seen, including: - Count Dracula - the Phantom of the Opera - a witch - the Marquis De Sade - a werewolf - a mummy - a voodoo priest - a zombie - an urban legend killer (an axe murderer) - the Invisible Man - Frankenstein's monster - an Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) pod - a demonic baby (from It's Alive (1974/I)) - an alien creature - a "cobra-man" circus freak - Jack the Ripper - Mr. Hyde - and a golem.
After the policeman visits the Waxwork with Mark, he realizes that many of the statues of the victims resemble missing people from posters he had seen. These posters are actually just copies of one of the posters from the opening credits of The Lost Boys (1987). All of the missing person posters have a single photo of a missing adult, but the posters all have the same information of two missing children on the poster: William G. Bailey 7-26-62 Sandy blond hair brown eyes Missing since August 6, 1979 (or 1973) Call the Santa Carla Police Department Susan Wilbur 5-30-69 Black Hair Blue Eyes Missing since February 6, 1983.
