- The Cameo:
- Stephen King appears as a truck driver in "The Hitchhiker" segment.
- King's personal secretary, Shirley Sonderegger, has a cameo as Mrs. Cavanaugh in "Old Chief Wood'nhead" (although you don't see her face).
- Stephen King's house even has a cameo in the animated wraparound segment!
- Fatal Method Acting: Thankfully averted for Daniel Beer, who played Randy in "the Raft". He actually got a bad case of hypothermia during filming; it was so bad that his skin turned green! He was hospitalized, made a full recovery and was able to finish filming the segment.
- What Could Have Been: Was going to have the same number of stories as its predecessor but due to budget constraints had to cut them down to three. The unmade segments were:
- A zombies-and-bowling tale called Pinfall, based on an unpublished short by King.
- The Cat from Hell, a published story that was later adapted by Romero for Tales from the Darkside: The Movie.
- Barbara Eden (yes, THAT Barbara Eden) was originally going to play the hit & run driver in "The Hitchhiker" but ultimately dropped out.
