Sometime around 1997, there emerged a massive Internet hoax which claimed that a Siberian borehole had penetrated the Earth's crust into Hell itself, with "proof" being an audio recording of the screaming souls of the damned. This urban legend (variously known as the "Siberian Sounds of Hell" or "The Well to Hell" hoax) featured in many tabloids, and was even cited by some Christian groups as hard proof of a real Hell. The sound effects supposedly recorded within the borehole were actually a combination of story elements from a radio broadcast "Quiet Please - The Fourble Board", and audio lifted from this film.

The production was shot in six weeks, finishing three days ahead of schedule and under the budget as well.

Several times it changes between day and night between shots. For example, Peter arrives in broad daylight when he rescues Eva from the Baron, but it is the middle of the night when he brings her to the dorm afterwards.

Eva's hairstyle markedly changes in a matter of minutes: from the dinner scene at Karl's house to just a few minutes later when she and Peter are inside the castle, her hair goes from a wavy perm to being nearly straight-combed.
