There was a mishap with the fiery car climax. While Richard Backus and a stunt driver were speeding through the streets the fire set at the rear of the car got out of control and was sucked into the back seat of the speeding car. Fortunately there was a Plexiglas shield dividing the backseat from the front of the car where the performers were. It startled Backus, who had to stick his head out the window to keep from inhaling smoke. Much to the actor's dismay, director Bob Clark wanted the scene re-shot with less fire.
I died for you, Doc. Why shouldn't you return the favor?
The dead doctor can be seen breathing as Andy draws his blood.
The version released under the title, The Night Andy Came Home contains an additional snippet of dialogue during the final scene in the cemetery. After Andy buries himself and dies, his mother, kneeling over the grave, can be heard saying, "Andy's home. Some boys never come home." In the later Gorgon Video release under the title Deathdream, this dialogue has been intentionally muted so as not to reference the previous title.
