Although Cannibal Holocaust director Ruggero Deodato has acknowledged the similarities of The Blair Witch Project to his film, he criticized the publicity that it received for being an original production; advertisements for The Blair Witch Project also promoted the idea that the footage is genuine.

Django confronts Major Jackson in the saloon.
Django and María watch as a Klansman falls into a river of quicksand. Alex Cox has theorized that the two characters suffer from posttraumatic stress disorder due to a constant exposure to violence, and are therefore "perfect for each other".

According to Ruggero Deodato, Corbucci's assistant director, the director borrowed the idea of a protagonist who dragged a coffin behind him from a comic magazine he found on a news-stand in Via Veneto, Rome.
