When Jason places the "bride" victim on the bed near the beginning of the film, in close-up her eyes are gazing straight up and her mouth is slightly open. But, in the next shot, her gaze is lower and her mouth is practically closed. Also, the pillows around her head change.
Although he played a major character in the film, Patrick O'Neal's name does not appear in the ending credits.
Produced as a TV series pilot, this film was determined to be too violent for the small screen and given theatrical distribution instead. Added for this release was an exploitation device called the "Fear Flasher/Horror Horn", ostensibly to warn the audience of the "Four Supreme Fright Points" (although it was not applied to the picture's most explicitly violent moment, the climactic fate of the villain). This device was explained in an introductory sequence narrated by William Conrad. Upon first showing on US network television, both the device and its explanation were deleted, but in subsequent syndication to local stations in the 1970s and '80s, some such prints were seen.
