- Enforced Method Acting: Jeff's limping after the scene where he is thrown down a flight of stairs is real, as actor Peter Barton really hurt his leg.
- Similarly Named Works: The film shouldn't be confused with the PlayStation game Hell Night or the fellow Slasher film Happy Hell Night, from 1992.
- What Could Have Been: A script for a sequel had been made. Although it ultimately fell apart, the general outline of the script was reshaped into 2004's Dead Scared (AKA The Hazing).
- No Export for You: The game was only released in Japan and Europe. Because of this, the game is both rare and unknown.
