Because producer Dick Randall was simultaneously making kung-fu films in Rome, a cameo for a Bruce Lee imitator, Bruce Le, was written into this film, even though this scene makes no sense in the context of the rest of the film.
The "look" of the killer was based on the comic book character "The Shadow", not as is often thought Italian 'giallo' cinema.
(at around 1h 1 min) A pig carcass was used for the close-up of the chain saw cutting through the tennis player.
In the only trailer released, one of the final shots shows the chainsaw killer approaching the camera. As this happens, the same scream from Janet Leigh, the scene in Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho (1960) when she gets killed in the shower scene, is used.
