Notes & Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Also known by the titles Satânico and Demon Board.
- The title of the film is a bit misleading, as it does not actually involve demonic possession at all whatsoever, but does involve trace elements of Satanism as well as supernatural phenomena.
- Special thanks is given to Sean Clark, Raul Paredes, Fred Olen Ray and Melinda Wesley in this film.
- In the hospital scene, Cliff refers to Michelle as the "Bride of the Mummy", which is a reference to the 1932 film The Mummy starring Boris Karloff. The "Bride of..." comparison is also a reference to another Universal Monsters classic, The Bride of Frankenstein, directed by James Whale, which also stars Boris Karloff. Cliff also compares Michelle to the main character from The Invisible Man, which was a 1933 film by James Whale as well.
- Dalia refers to Jackie as Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS, which is a 1975 grindhouse exploitation film starring Dyanne Thorne.
- The movie playing on the television when Michelle finds Bisson's body is Bikini Airways by Fred Olen Ray.
