This film was inspired by "The Most Dangerous Game," as both films share the same basic plot (men being hunted by other men for sport).
In both films, a character is shot through the head while looking through a peephole

The scene where Van Cleaf cuts Randal's ear off with the scissors eerily echoes Mr. Blonde's slicing the ear off the cop in Reservoir Dogs.
The single-shot pistol that Phillip Chung-Fung Kwok (Mad Dog) uses is a Thompson Center Contender, featuring interchangeable barrels of different calibers. It was later used in Hard Target (1993).
