Movie Quote(s):
  • [Myles is going to light a cigarette] Duncan Ely: Oh, throw that disgusting cylinder away!
  • Myles Clarkson: We could use a new brand of Scotch. This tastes like a poor man's kilt.
  • [after smashing a headlight with a wrench] Paula Clarkson: Oh, by the way, someone smashed one of the headlights. You shouldn't leave the Rolls out there in plain view. This neighborhood is full of rich teenaged bastards.
  • Duncan Ely: People should be born at the age of 70 and live their life backwards.
  • Roxanne Delancey: I've changed my perfume... It's called Shalimar... You like it?
Movie Trivia:
  • Has the singular distinction of being the only theatrical film produced by Twentieth Century-Fox during the entire calendar year of 1970, this due to financial reversals incurred by the studio when several of its recent films failed at the box office.
  • The mask worn by the black dog is that of William Shatner, the same style mask worn by Michael Myers in the original Halloween (1978).
