Originally, Jack Sholder was set to direct Lara Flynn Boyle and Dennis Hopper in the film. After Sholder backed out, due to creative differences, John Landis stepped in and replaced Boyle and Hopper with Anne Parillaud and Robert Loggia, respectively. Landis himself had been set to direct another vampire film for Warner Brothers and Joel Silver, called "Red Sleep", starring Wayne Newton as a Las Vegas lounge singer who is bitten and seduced by a female vampire. When the failures of Landis' Oscar (1991) and Silver's Hudson Hawk (1991) killed that project, Landis moved on to this movie.

DIRECTOR TRADEMARK (John Landis): (See You Next Wednesday): Advertised on the marquee across the street from the Melody Lounge exotic dance bar. The car crash at the Shadyside gas station scene was filmed in Squirrel Hill, and the nearby multiplex cinema changed its marquee to be "See You Next Wednesday" every night after closing. The movie itself featured no footage of that theater (or the street it's on), although it's possible that it was edited out.

John Landis saw 29th Street (1991) and cast Anthony LaPaglia, Vic Noto, Tony Lip, and Tony Sirico from that film to appear in this movie. He also saw The Last Boy Scout (1991), and cast Kim Coates. Naturally, all had to audition for Landis anyway.

The trivia item below may give away important plot points.

Marie's eyes change color depending on either her vampire side coming into play or her mood. Her eyes turn bloody red when she's feasting. In the scene where Joe confronts her in the car for the chaotic events that are taking place, her eyes turn emerald green when she shows great stress and shame. Intriguingly, in the love scene with Joe, her eyes turn a variety of colors due to her pleasant and ecstatic mood.
