In the shooting script, there was supposed to be scene where Mark and Sarah visit James and Gemma after they had decided not to attend the Waxwork tour. The couple are watching Dawn of the Dead (1978) together in James's basement and Gemma unsuccessfully tries to get her boyfriend's attention since it's just the two of them. James isn't in the mood, as he's too caught up into the film, and Gemma sulks by getting a cigarette. Gemma hears a scraping noise on the window. and she switches the TV off to get James's attention. James originally dismisses Gemma's claim as nothing, until he hears the same noise, louder than before. James goes to the window and finds nothing, but is startled when Mark grabs his throat and leaps up screaming like a zombie. James falls to the floor, Mark and Sarah peer up from the window laughing, and James tells them to get lost. James leaves to go to bed, with Gemma shrugging and following after James. It remains unknown if the sequence was ever filmed or simply scripted. See more »
When Sarah is in Mark's attic, she looks at a book of the Marquis de Sade in a trunk and it glows with white light. When Sarah looks up, hypnotized by the book when it glows, her left hand runs up to the top of her dress. However, in the very next shot, Sarah's left hand is suddenly down and it runs up to the top of her dress all over again. See more »
I didn't go into watching this B horror movie expecting a masterpiece so I was definitely surprised by how good this movie was. The concept is so ridiculous you wouldn't think this movie could be as awesome as it is. You can't take the movie too serious because it does have it's over the top goofy moments at times but that's all part of it's charm really. The make-up/special effects are what make this movie really affective, they are better than most all the horror movies in theaters these days (Why do movie makers think computer animated/simulated monsters are scare?!?! it's beyond me!). Maybe if they saw "Waxwork" they could get it right. Anyway...this surprisingly unique and clever little film is a real treat if you like 80's scary movies like me!!
