Hell of the Living Dead (1980) was the first time that actress Margit Evelyn Newton played the leading role. Before that, she was cast in supporting roles for La vedova del trullo (1979), Mafia, una legge che non perdona (1980), and The Last Hunter (1980). She was so nervous to play the lead that she was unable to sleep to begin with. The first scenes shot show this as her eyes show noticeable fatigue than in the later scenes where she became more comfortable in the starring role.
