- Defictionalization: An actual Creepshow comic was made adapting the movie's stories, although they were presented in a different order than they were in the film (and included scenes that didn't make the final cut of the movie).
- Hey, It's That Guy!:
- Sam Malone is one of Richard's victims.
- Young Joe Hill (nee King) is the little boy in the framing story.
- When Billie isn't nagging her husband, she is helping Snake Escape from New York.
- Becky Vickers is played by Francine Parker.
- Makeup FX man/director/Motorcycle Gang Member Tom Savini as one of the garbagemen in the epilogue.
- Playing Against Type: Those old enough to follow Leslie Nielsen's work would know he has done serious roles in the past and find no surprise that he puts on a genuinely scary performance. Those who only knew him in his comedy on the other hand are genuinely frightened that such a funny guy like him could be so malicious.
