James Horner had a couple of other scores for other movies the same year as this like Braveheart (1995), Apollo 13 (1995), Jumanji (1995), Casper (1995) and Balto (1995). His score in this film is mixed with the song mystic's dream by Lorenna McKennitt and it sounds similar to his other scores in Red Heat (1988), Thunderheart (1992), etc. Horner was chosen in part by the studio who loved the score of Braveheart that he did for them and for Mel Gibson himself and also William Friedkin wanted to have a chance to work with Horner since he admired his work in other films.

The European version apparently contains more explicit sex than the R-rated US versions both in the scenes featuring the videocassette that the police finds in the victim's bedroom and in the scene showing Jade and an unknown lover towards the end. These more explicit sex scenes in the European version are included in the director's cut in the U.S. These scenes were cut to avoid an "NC-17" rating.
