* Brandon Lee as Eric Draven. Most of his movies prior to this play him as a skilled martial artist, yet with a laid back comedic personality. This movie on the other hand shows him PlayingAgainstType [[HeReallyCanAct and not only is it successful, it is scary]]. The fact that he died ''in the making of this movie'' makes his performance more haunting.

* A real meta example for Michael Massee, the actor who played Funboy. He pulled the trigger during the accidental death of Brandon Lee. Before dying in 2016, he said in interviews that he ''still'' had nightmares 20 years later.

* [[BigBad Top Dollar]] himself is pretty damn creepy. He's not just a crime boss, he's also a twisted pyromaniac who [[IncestIsRelative sleeps with Myca, his own half-sister]], and [[SerialKiller murders their sexual partners]] so that Myca can use them in occult rituals. How depraved can one man be?

* A ''lot'' of scenes from the comic, especially [[spoiler:some of Eric's more surreal grief scenes (horse + barbed wire) and his self-mutilation]].
* In the comic, after Eric is shot in the head a second time, drops to the ground. Still alive, he is facing Shelly as she cries his name, is raped, shot in the head and raped some more, (yes, in that order) unable to move or even close his eyes while the crow tells him "Don't look, Eric! Don't look!"
* Quite a few of the vigilante murder scenes in the comic, especially Tom Tom's (who [[spoiler: has the lower parts of his legs sliced off by a samurai sword and slowly bleeds to death]]).
* The movie has a blood-curdling scene (not in the comic) in which Eric places his palm over the barrel of Fun Boy's gun and dares him to pull the trigger. Fun Boy does so, and Eric at first pretends to scream in pain. But then he pulls away, the bloody hole in his hand starts to ''spontaneously close up'', and Eric starts up a wicked laugh [[TheHyena that builds in intensity until it is high-pitched, screechy, and wild]]. That's when Fun Boy finally realizes that he's fucked.
