When trying to call home, the telephone number that David Kessler gives the operator (516-472-3402) contains a Long Island, New York area code. It is also an unusual case where an actual phone number is used.

When David calls home to speak to his family, he speaks to his sister Rachel. During the conversation, they talk about their brother Max. Max and Rachel are the names of Director John Landis' children.
So the nightmare scene where Landis had his own children shot and killed by nazi werewolf things is actually a nod to Argento and his habit of doing horrible things to his daughter in movies?
At least he never had his daughter raped on screen. Shocked
You must not have seen Blues Brothers 2000

The scene when the werewolf runs riot in Piccadilly Circus was filmed at that busy intersection when police stopped the normal traffic and the public. Everyone took their places, it was filmed with multiple cameras and it was all cleaned up within the half hour. It was the first time in many years that filming had been allowed in Piccadilly Circus, due to lingering resentment over an unannounced smoke bomb which director Michael Winner set off while filming a scene for The Jokers (1967/I), after which he sped off in a taxi with the film magazine while other members of the crew were arrested; however, John Landis' cordial experience in working with the Chicago police on The Blues Brothers (1980) helped overcome official reluctance to approve the filming, especially as he had completely worked out a plan, using a scale model of the area, whereby traffic would be minimally disrupted.

It's hard to see but the shot where the werewolf looks up at the cop the body there has its intestines spilled out.

It's great how chaos just breaks out. Really adds to it.

At the close of the credits is a congratulatory message for the wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana (as Lady Diana Spencer). It was included because the excitement over the preparations for their July 1981 wedding was overwhelming London during the shoot.
