Trivia

There are several homages to the original 1956 film this move is based upon. At a movie theater there is a poster for the original movie. After the girls leave town they stop at a gas station. The company name over the gas pump is "American International" Petroleum. This name and the company's logo is identical to the company that released the original film. See more »

Quotes

Mr. Nicholson: [over loud speaker at drive-in theater] Snack bar is closing in five minutes. Just five more minutes for those shrimp rolls. They're shrimply delicious!
[takes a bite of one, chews, then grimaces]

Joe Dante does it again, making a fun little picture that captures the spirit of the b-picture. He dopes this like no one else. Not every film he has made is incredible, but this really deserves more attention than it has received (likely because it was buried as a television episode).

We have some great Dante regulars and new faces: Dick Miller, Robert Picardo, Dee Wallace, Belinda Balaski, Paul Rudd, Roger Corman, Sam Arkoff and Courtney Gains. This works as a companion piece to Dante's "Matinee" taking on the 1960s.
