- Valek: Isn't it beautiful? Something you'll never forget? I know I won't.
Jack Crow: You ever seen a vampire? Father Adam Guiteau: No I haven't. Jack Crow: No... Well first of all, they're not romatic. Its not like they're a bunch of fuckin' fags hoppin' around in rented formal wear and seducing everybody in sight with cheesy Euro-trash accents, all right? Forget whatever you've seen in the movies: they don't turn into bats, crosses don't work. Garlic? You wanna try garlic? You could stand there with garlic around your neck and one of these buggers will bend you fucking over and take a walk up your strada-chocolata WHILE he's suckin' the blood outta your neck, all right? And they don't sleep in coffins lined in taffata. You wanna kill one, you drive a wooden stake right through his fuckin' heart. Sunlight turns 'em into crispy critters.
Valek: For 600 years I have fed on your kind at will.
Jack Crow: What the fuck do you want, Valek? Valek: Oh, you hate me so, don't ya? But you made me, Crusader. You hate what you made. You fear it because it is superior to you. For six hundred years, I've fed on your kind at will! [Attempts to bite Jack but slowly refuses] Valek: No. Jack Crow: Why don't you just kill me and get it over with? Cardinal Alba: Because you are needed, Jack. The ceremony is a re-enactment of the first exorcism. It requires the blood of a crusader and his crucifixion upon a burning cross. The climax of the ceremony must coincide with the first rays of the rising sun. Sorry, Jack.
Valek: You can't kill me.
- Cameo: [Frank Darabont] the Man With Buick, whose car is stolen by Daniel Baldwin.
The symbol on the necklace that Daniel Baldwin wears in the movie is the Nordic rune meaning "Protector".
Was to be directed by Russell Mulcahy.
Was originally going to star Dolph Lundgren, with Russell Mulcahy as director. They instead made Silent Trigger (1996).
Just before production began the studio cut the budget by 2/3, and the filmmakers had to furiously rework the story to fit. According to John Steakley, who wrote the novel, the finished film contained much of his dialogue and none of his plot.
