About half of the film is supposed to take place at night. You can tell because they say things like "when it gets light" and the interiors of the car are dark. Despite this, it is clearly daylight in every single exterior shot. See more »

To give his film more credibility, writer/director/composer/editor/producer/actor Tom (Lockyear) Graeff credited himself as "Tom Lockyear" for the role of Joe, a newspaper reporter and Betty's boyfriend. See more »
Tom Graeff's entire film career consisted of this one film and work editing another. He shot it for $5000, performed much of the work himself, and gave his boyfriend David Love (Charles Robert Kaltenthaler) the lead role. Graeff was 28 and Love 23 when the film was shot. Graeff died 12 years later after an apparent mental breakdown; no one seems to know what happened to Love. Amazingly, Warners paid $25,000 for distribution rights for this clunker at a time when teen audiences were eating up sci-fi movies. More bizarre details about the film, including props and locations used, are at the Daddy-O's Drive-In Dirt website.
