Movie Trivia:

  • Canada's first film in the horror genre.
  • Leo Leyden's first movie performance.
  • According to a piece on the film in Filmfax (issue #25), Slavko Vorkapich's ideas for the 3-D sequences were ultimately too expensive to be used, and Julian Roffman did much of the conceptual work himself. Vorkapich's name remained in the credits because of a "pay or play" option in his contract.
