The scene where Brett bows in front of the mirror to reveal Wallace standing directly behind him is a homage to Dario Argento's film Tenebrae (1982), which Michele Soavi was an assistant director on. See more »
When Alicia uses the Fire Extinguisher on Irving Wallace, he falls and grabs a power cable to climb back up. In the wide shot of Irving Wallace climbing back up, in the far right corner of the frame, you can clearly see a cable, hoisting him up as he climbs up the cable. See more »

The original 1986 UK Avatar video release was pre-cut by around 11 secs before BBFC submission with edits to a pickax murder, the drill murder, and the stabbing of Laurel. Later issues on the Redemption and Vipco labels were fully uncut. See more »
Stage Fright Aquarius is a truly remarkable artistic giallo film from Michael Soavi. The storyline, following a group working on a stage play, made a great spooky setting. This film almost seemed like an upper-scale U.S. slasher flick. I also loved some of the camera movement techniques that created weird disorienting scenes with the addition of the unsettling music score. Scenes involving the killer owl were great, just the right amount of carnage that wasn't over the top. How can I forget the girls in the movie, they are super attractive as well, all wearing skimpy outfits for their stage performance. One aspect of the film I found pretty lousy though was Pete's character. He received bad dialog and was written questionable motives. All and all, I watched the movie in one sitting and was absolutely glued to the television screen. Stage Fright Aquarius (8/10) is tense throughout and has an amazing ending that is definitely a nice cherry on top.
