Swedish rock band Europe based the song 'Seven Doors Hotel' from their first album on this film. The lyrics are a basic retelling of the plot of the film. The song became a big hit in Japan, and is still a popular track at their live shows. See more »

The end titles of the U.S. version, "7 Doors of Death" are full of incorrect billings.
David Warbeck's character John McCabe is billed as "Doc." Antonie Saint-John (here called Tony Saint-John) is billed as Joe the Plumber. He actually played Schweick. Veronica Lazar is billed as playing the little girl, Jill. She was Martha, the housekeeper. Jill was played by Maria Pia Marsala. Someone named "Philip Ostrow" is billed as playing Arthur, Martha's son. He was played by Giampaolo Saccarola. Martha is billed as being played by someone named Margaret Lund. She was played by Veronica Lazar. Mary-Ann (billed here as "Joe's Wife") is billed as being played by someone named Helen Pierce. She was played by Laura De Marchi. Schweick (billed here as "Sweik") is billed as being played by someone named Robert Leahy. He was played by Antoine Saint-John. Dr. Harris is billed as being played by someone named Jim Barrett. He was played by Al Cliver.
If you count Catriona MacColl and Cinzia Monreale's real names not being used, every single cast listing in the "7 Doors of Death" version is wrong in some way or another. See more »
The UK video by 'Vampix' was once on the video nasty list, although this version is cut exactly the same as the version passed 'X' for cinema release and released by 'Vipco' and 'Elephant Video' in 1987 See more »
The idea of a gateway to hell being opened has potential but this movie doesn't pull it off. The story lacks details, the characters trait's are not developed enough, and the dialog is utterly ridiculous ("Attack Dickie! Attack!"). The only reason someone might want to see this movie is because of the gore, which the movie has a lot of, but some scenes are unrealistic. I advise people that aren't fans of Fulci's work to steer clear.
