Trivia

Soon after this film, Roddy McDowall and Fright Night creator Tom Holland were scheduled to meet with Live Entertainment chairman Jose Menendez to discuss making a third film, but plans died with Menendez, who was famously murdered by his sons.
Bob Bergen who did the roars and other sounds for the vampires blew his vocal cords recording the death screams and had to rest his voice for several weeks.

Julie Carmen initially wasn't interested in taking the role "because Regine's character was nothing more than an Elvira imitation," she told Fangoria in a 1988 interview. After the script went through revisions, she became so enamored with the role that she turned down other projects to ensure she had ample time to prepare for the part.

Julie Carmen watched the first film countless times and tried to emulate some of Chris Sarandon's mannerisms.

Julie Carmen had never done any prosthetic makeup prior to this film, and she was so freaked out when they made the life mask of her head that she had a panic attack as the plaster hardened and then went home and burst into tears about the experience. As soon as she regained her composure, Carmen received a call from a crew member informing her that there had been a problem with the mold and she'd have to do it again the next day.
