Trivia: The "vomit creature" sequence and "Kane beast" creature were added to the film after Julian Beck, who portrayed Kane in his human form, passed away during filming after a long battle with cancer. The crew purposely made the vomit creature's face loosely resemble Beck's, and added Beck's face into the mass of faces on the beast in order to let the audience know that the creatures were meant to be the Kane character in different forms.
