The film was originally green-lit with a budget of $20 million. The scale of the visual effects led New Line to continually increase the project budget, which grew to $40 million-a third of which was spent on the effects. The shooting schedule was only 63 days. To cut production times by a week, Clint Goldman lent $1 million to engage John Grower's Santa Barbara Studios to develop the digitally produced Hell sequences. The visual effects shot count increased from 77 to over 400, created by 22 companies in the United States, Canada and Japan, requiring 70 people and nearly 11 months to complete. ILM did most of the work, creating 85 shots at a cost of $8.5 million. The most difficult sequences in the film to render included the Violator, Spawn's digital cape, and some of Spawn's transformations. More than half of the final effects shots were delivered two weeks before the film's debut. See more »
In the alley after Violator took Spawn away from Cyan's birthday party. We see Spawn sitting his back against the wall and Violator who is still in the clown suit is bringing some food and soda cup that he places on the barrel next to Spawn. Violator then proceeds taking off the clown costume while the barrel is off camera. When we next time see the items on the barrel the items are in different places. Most noticeable is the soda cup that fell over when Violator placed the items on the barrel as it is now in upright position on the barrel. See more »
The battle between Heaven and Hell has waged eternal, their armies fueled by souls harvested on Earth. The devil, Malebolgia, has sent a lieutenant to Earth to recruit men who will turn the world into a place of death in exchange for wealth and power, a place that will provide enough souls to complete his army and allow Armageddon to begin. All the Dark Lord needs now is a great soldier, someone who can lead his hordes to the gates of Heaven and burn them down.

A R-rated Director's Cut has been released for VHS, DVD, and laserdisc. It includes scenes that had to be cut for a PG-13. The film has a couple of new violent scenes. At the end of the film is a 30-minute interview with the creator Todd McFarlane and a Behind the Scenes of Spawn show that was first aired on the Sci-Fi Network. See more »
The problem again here with this movie, that had an excellent story, is the usage that the director gave to it. This director could not handle the story and delivered just a plain and simple story, that is kind of boring. Mark Dippe, learn from directors as Norrington (Blade), and from Guillermo del Toro (Mimic). What a shame.
