* HollywoodHomely: Enforced. Lisa Wilcox was initially passed over as Alice because she was considered too good-looking for the role, so she intentionally made herself look less flattering.
* TheOtherDarrin: Patricia Arquette, who played Kristen in the previous film, gets replaced by Tuesday Knight in this one. Depending on who you ask, either Arquette was pregnant, she asked for too much money, or director Creator/RennyHarlin just didn't like her.
** One of the early concepts for the film was something involving "traveling through dreams".
** Tibor Takács (''Film/TheGate'') was offered to direct the film.
** Ellie Cornel (who played Rachel in ''[[Film/Halloween4TheReturnOfMichaelMyers Halloween 4]]'' and ''[[Film/Halloween5TheRevengeOfMichaelMyers 5]]'') auditioned for the role of Alice.
** In one of the earlier drafts of the film, Rick and Alice were twins, and Rick [[spoiler:was supposed to live]].
