According to star Lesleh Donaldson this film is quite a popular cult classic in Mexico.

Frontier Amusements released this in Canada in the fall of 1980 as CRIES IN THE NIGHT and then re-released the movie in September of 1982 as FUNERAL HOME.

In an interview with star Lesleh Donaldson she said that she always thought of this film as something of a cross between the Little Red Riding Hood fable and Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho (1960).

The film's French title is 'Le Cri des Ténèbres', meaning 'The Cry of Darkness'.
