* DyingAsYourself: After the narrator's repetition of how Javorsky was a kind man until he became the Beast, the scene with the rabbit works as an example of this trope [[note]].According to an interview, Tony Cardoza: "I [Tony] showed it to [Greek film investor] Skouras at 20th Century-Fox. And his favorite scene was the scene at the end when the rabbit comes up to Tor Johnson during his death scene. And do you know that that was a wild rabbit that came up to Tor? That wasn't a trained rabbit, it was a baby jack rabbit that came out of nowhere, a bunny. It was like a miracle -- he came over to Tor while we were shooting, and he was lying on the ground dying. Tor opened his eyes and saw it and kissed it. Can you imagine that? Isn't that an amazing scene?[[/note]]

* FanService: The topless actress in the opening murder has basically nothing to do with the movie's plot. Coleman apparently just thought a nudie scene would be cool.
