  • The lobby of the Caliban building is said to be inspired by the lobby of the offices of Creative Artists Agency in Beverly Hills, which were designed by renowed architect IM Pei.
  • Much of Karel Roden's dialogue is dubbed by an uncredited English actor since audiences found his Czech accent too thick.
  • In the scene when Blade cuts the vampire, Reinhardt, in half, this is a reference to the anime film Vampire Hunter D in which a similar scene occurred.
  • The phrase "a man without fear" is used in this film. This is another comic book reference, this one a reference to Daredevil, which is now a Ben Affleck film.
  • The corporate artwork in the Caliban building, which is knocked over in the climactic fight scene, represents a DNA double helix.

Credits Fun:

  • No real reapers were hurt during the making of this film.
