Pop Icon Michael Jackson was originally going to have a cameo in the "House of Pain" sequence as a "Vampire Pimp" that Nyssa encounters as she searches the upstairs hall. Jackson had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts and the part was played by a Czech actor. The sequence was ultimately cut out entirely for pacing reasons.
The corporate artwork in the Caliban building, which is knocked over in the climactic fight scene, represents a DNA double helix.
No real reapers were hurt during the making of this film.
