When Judith is working at the reception desk of the skyscraper hotel in Seattle, Washington, a man named "J. J. McMahon" requires her attention. After all, he does "have a reservation". John J. McMahon, aka "J. J. McMahon" is the CEO of Wilshire Court Productions, the filming company that "created" (filmed, shot, designed, etc.) this film. Using his name is a fitting homage to a man that created an amazing company that created such an outstanding movie. This is also the reason that the credits list him as "Executive" rather than "J. J. McMahon". See more »
When Elaine first arrives at the City Agencies office, watch the display board which lists the names of all of the departments within the building. While the departments should be listed in numerical order, the office for the Public Transportation department (#615) is inadvertently listed below numbers 669 and 689, rather than before them. Note that the "Transportation" in "Public Transportation" is misspelled. The "T" and the "A" from the word's third syllable are missing, and the word written on the sign actually reads "TRANSPORTION". Also note that while AGING is spelled "Ageing" in Australia and places overseas, the Americanized version of the word is correctly spelled "Aging".

Elaine Kalisher is a writer for a travel magazine and is sent to the Wessex Hotel in Los Angeles to write an article.While exploring the hotel the service lift breaks down on an unmarked 13th floor.There she witnesses a murder,but is assured (when she is awake) by the hotel doctor that there is no 13th floor.She tries to solve the mystery of 13th floor...Dull and rarely involving TV production with not enough thrills for my liking.There is absolutely no gore,so I consider it a perfect horror movie for children.All the axe murders happen off-screen.I do like subtle horror like other reviewers,but the boredom almost kills "Nightmare on the 13th Floor".4 out of 10.
