Trivia:
The music used in the church resurrection scene is "The Black Mass: An Electric Storm in Hell" from the 1969 album "An Electric Storm" by White Noise. The group themselves were an experimental space-age rock combo formed by David Vorhaus and featuring Delia Derbyshire & Brian Hodgson from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.See more »
Goofs:
Factual errors: The action supposedly takes place over a Friday-Sunday in September, 1972. On the Friday night, Jessica says Lawrence Van Helsing died September 18, 100 years ago to the day, but that Friday in 1972 was September 15.See more »
