  • Completely Different Title:

    • Total Hazard (Argentina/Peru)
    • Infernal Storm (Portugal)

  • In Memoriam: The film is dedicated to Sylvester Stallone's mountain climbing double Wolfgang Güllich (who ironically passed away in a road accident unconnected to the film) and Carolco head Mario Kassar's mother.
  • Name's the Same: Just how many British credit-watchers were startled to see "Jim Davidson" listed as an associate producer in the opening titles may never be known.
  • What Could Have Been: The film was originally called Gale Force and was going to feature Stallone taking on terrorists in a coastal town during a hurricane. However, it would have been too costly and difficult to make.
    • Christopher Walken was originally cast as Qualen, but pulled out just before filming started.
