New Jersey Drive
- The city of Newark, New Jersey refused to allow filming in city limits.
Friday The 13th
- Betsy Palmer said that if it were not for the fact that she was in desperate need of a new car, she would never have taken the part of Pamela Voorhies. In fact, after she read the script she called the film "a piece of shit".
- According to an interview with bit-part actor Jeff Pang (who plays himself), many of the party scenes in the film were completely unscripted. The cameras would roll and the "kids" would just get drunk, get high, and play around. There is debate however, as to whether the 'blunt-rolling tutorial' scene in Washington Square Park used real marijuana or not.
Nightmare On Elm St.
- Director Wes Craven claims to have named Freddy Krueger after a kid who bullied him in school and to have based his appearance on a disfigured hobo who scared him as a youth.
- This was the first real movie by New Line Cinema. Before that, they were just a distribution company for college campuses.
- The original glove was also used in A Nightmare On Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge (1985) but then the glove went missing. The original glove was used in 1986 for Evil Dead II (1987) (according to the DVD)
-This movie was almost never made. About halfway through filming, New Line lost its deal with the distribution company. As a direct result, they couldn't pay the cast or crew for two whole weeks until they found another distribution company. They didn't lose one crew member.
- New Line Cinema was saved from bankruptcy by the success of the film, and was jokingly nicknamed "the house that Freddy built".
- Over 500 gallons of fake blood were used during the making of the film.
-Wes Craven claimed to have drawn inspiration for this movie from a series of news stories that involved a group of young Cambodians who died from a horrific nightmare. The story goes first these young, healthy people would have a nightmare refuse to sleep for as long as they could, then when they finally fell asleep from sheer exhaustion they awoke with a scream, and died from a heart failure.
Freddy Vs Jason
- New Line first attempted to make this film in 1987, when they tried to team up with Paramount Pictures to make it as Friday the 13th VII, but there was never an agreement made.
- One early version of the script called for the beginning of the film to take place in medieval times, while another called for the beginning to start out at camp crystal lake, with Jason getting arrested. Another script was to have the beginning of the film take place at the eve of the millennium.
- When Jason is impaled on his own machete, Freddy uses some iron plates to push the machete in deeper. The last three plates that fly through the air, form the New Line Cinema logo.
City Of God (2002)
-The director was once quoted as saying that if he knew the dangers of filming the movie in a Rio favela, he wouldn't have done the movie.
-One day, during a pause of the shooting the group of kids who played the Runts approached screenwriter Braulio Mantovani and asked him if it was true that the movie would end with their characters controlling the slum. When he confirmed, they asked if he could write a sequel for them to star in.

-It is a mystery to director 'Brian De Palma' himself, whether the cocaine 'Tony Montana'(Pacino) sniffs during the ending is indeed real or not. 'Al Pacino' has been asked this question numerous times, but all he replies is that he prefers not to say, as "it would take away someone's belief of it."
