Movie Quote(s):
  • Casey: Chuck, I never did like you. Oh, but God, hold me tight.
  • Trash: Do you ever wonder about all the different ways of dying? You know, violently? And wonder, like, what would be the most horrible way to die? Spider: I try not too think about dying too much. Trash: Mm. Well for me, the worst way would be for a bunch of old men to get around me, and start biting and eating me alive. Spider: I see. Trash: First, they would tear off my clothes... Chuck: Hey, somebody get some light over here, Trash is taking off her clothes again.
  • Frank: Watch your tongue, boy, if you like this job! Freddy: Like this job?
  • Frank: Did you see that movie, "Night of the Living Dead"? Freddy: Yeah, that's where the corpses started eating the people, right? Frank: Yeah - did you know that movie was based on a true case?
  • Burt Wilson: I thought you said if we destroyed the brain, it'd die? Frank: It worked in the movie! Burt Wilson: Well, it ain't workin' now, Frank! Freddy: You mean the movie lied?
Movie Trivia:
  • Tobe Hooper was originally slated to direct and it was supposed to be filmed in 3-D.
  • The two heroes of the movie are names Burt and Ernie, obviously an ironic reference to the popular "Sesame Street" (1969) characters, right? Wrong. Turns out Dan O'Bannon didn't know he was using the names of the two beloved children's show's puppets (from liner notes in the Collector's Edition DVD).
  • The nuclear cannon at the end of the film was actually a WWII German Howitzer.
  • The eye-test poster (seen most clearly after Frank and Freddy run into Burt's office after hearing the first re-animated cadaver) in Burt's office actually reads "Burt is a slave driver and a cheap son of a bitch who's got you and me here" if you put the letters together.
  • Director Dan O'Bannon was originally supposed to play Frank and he wrote the part with himself in mind, but when 'James Karen (I)' came in to read for another part, O'Bannon was simply blown away and hired him on the spot.
