EXTRASThe script was written after Sam Raimi and Ivan Raimi completed Army of Darkness (1992), but Sam pursued other projects before returning to this.
When Sylvia Ganush attacks Christine in her car, Sylvia uses the Hungarian word "szajha" two times. The word means bitch or whore in English. She says it for the first time after her face has been stapled, the second time she says it right after she breaks Christine's car's window with a brick. When Christine first sees Sylvia in her car, Sylvia says in English: "You shamed me." Grabs Christine's hair, pulls her back and tells her this time in Hungarian: "Te szégyentelen", literal translation would be: "You shameless".
Sam Raimi: [Oldsmobile] Raimi's 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88, also known as the Classic, appears in the movie as Sylvia Ganush's car.
The license plate of Sylvia Ganush's car is 99951. When it is turned upside-down, it reads IS666.
