When Bella visits Jacob after the newborn battle, a painting of the A-Ka-Lat “Top of the Rock” island formation off the coast of La Push Beach can clearly be seen behind Bella during her dialogue sides. According to actual Quileute tradition, prominent members of the Quileute tribe have been buried on the A-Ka-Lat island.

“The Cold One” is played by Peter Murphy, who was the lead singer of the English band Bauhaus. Their brief success during the late 1970s and early 1980s is considered by many music critics to have given birth to the “Goth” rock genre, and their debut single, “Bela Lugosi’s Dead,” introduced several elements into the “Goth” genre and subculture - including its interest in vampires (Bela Lugosi being the actor who played Count Dracula in Dracula). Therefore, Murphy’s presence in Eclipse is a tip of the hat to several layers of subculture that predate the “Twilight”-era vampire enthusiasms. Murphy’s only other feature film appearance was in The Hunger, also a vampire film, in which he sang “Bela Lugosi’s Dead”.
