  • Most of the Italian and other non-English speaking actors/actresses actually dubbed their own voices into English for the USA and UK distribution.
  • A sequel to Phenomena was going to go into production in 2001 but it was canceled due to Dario Argento's contract with Medusa.
  • The larvae were created by placing vermiculite in water and adding liquid chocolate and essence of mint.
  • Director Dario Argento said that his idea for the look of the killer child came from the real genetic disorder Patau Syndrome, which causes severe deformation of the face. For this reason, Argento calls the child Patau, even though he is never named during the film.
