Did You Know?

Trivia

At the time, Johnny Depp was depressed about films and filmmaking. By accepting this part, it gave him a "chance to stretch out and have some fun", and working with Martin Landau, "rejuvenated my love for acting".


Quotes

Bela Lugosi: I think she's a honey. Look at those jugs.


Goofs

In a screening room, Ed calls back to the projectionist to show the footage again. At which point, the projector (the same projector) immediately restarts although the film has not been rewound and rethreaded.


Crazy Credits

In the opening credits, Johnny Depp's name appears in capital letters, followed by the title - both of them alternating in black and white, as though being illuminated by lightning - and the rest of the main cast are credited on tombstones. Supporting cast and crew names appear in white against dark, rainy sets featuring meant-to-look-low-budget effects such as a giant tentacle and flying saucers in outer space.
