Revealing mistake: In "Cat from Hell" the cat crawls back out of Halston's mouth after the clock strikes twelve at Drogans return. As it exits, the mouth and face collapses and is quite obviously made of rubber.

Continuity mistake: In "Lover's Vow" Wyatt leaves the bar after firing Preston, leaving his drink and newspaper on the end of the bar. In the next shot the paper has changed position and in the next shot it completely disappears.

Visible crew/equipment: In "Cat from Hell" Amanda trips over the cat on the staircase, and falls downstairs. The white kneepads that she wears as she rolls down are quite visible in the slow motioned close-up of her.

Trivia: George A. Romero wrote the screenplay for the segment "Cat From Hell," so director John Harrison put two references to Romero's work into this film as a kind of payment. In "Lot 249" when Lee is lying on the couch and the TV is on, it is playing Dawn of the Dead. Later on in the film, in "Cat from Hell," Halston is shown watching the Vampire classic, Martin, directed by Romero.

Trivia: The third story, " A Lovers Vow" was based on the Japanese folklore of the yuki-onna. However, writer Malcom McDowell decided that the creature should be a gargoyle instead of a spirit.
