* ColbertBump: Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter of Music/DaftPunk are ''huge'' fans, and even [[AwesomeDearBoy fulfilled a lifelong dream of theirs]] by collaborating with Paul Williams on the album ''Get Lucky'', thus raising public awareness of the film significantly and helping to introduce a new generation to it.



* EvilIsSexy: Swan was a DracoInLeatherPants for many female fans upon the films release.

** [[WhatCouldHaveBeen Could've been]] even worse if they hadn't changed the name of the character from early scripts; Swan was initially meant to be called "Spectre".
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The movie has an intense fanbase in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and conventions are regularly held.
** Furthermore it played for 62 WEEKS STRAIGHT there when it first came out!

"Spectre". (Given that Spector's instability was well-established amongst the recording industry at that point, it was most likely intended as a TakeThat.)

** "Never Thought I'd Get to Meet the Devil", kept off the soundtrack album for reasons unfathomable.

** For the first hour of the movie anything Winslow did was at least understandable. But when Phoenix's performance is about to start he murders the totally innocent stagehand operating the spotlight so he can man it - and he murders Beef for no better reason than he was in the wrong place at the wrong time - showing how far he has gone in his anger and obsession.

* TheWoobie - Winslow.
** Especially pre-Phantomization. He's impossible not to want to hug and be friends with.

* RetroactiveRecognition: For the''[[WhoseLineIsItAnyway Whose Line?]]'' fans, there's Archie Hahn as one of The Juicy Fruits. In fact, it's a little strange watching him in this film, and actually sing really well, while on ''Whose Line?'', he... well.... didn't.
