Burt Reynolds screen-tested twice for the role as teen character Paul Lawrence, but reportedly performed so woodenly that he was not chosen. See more »
When Donna puts on her bikini bottom after supposedly disrobing behind the rock, she pulls them up over her panties. This goof is only noticeable in the full-screen (open matte) version of the film. When cropped for wide screen the illusion of nudity is preserved. See more »
Now here's what cheap sci-fi teen horror is all about, and it's from AIP, of course! Astronaut is killed in space while possessed by an evil alien force, but somehow his severed arm makes its way to earth, still hosting the alien, and begins a killing spree. If that's not good enough, you've got troubled teens, two proto-X-Files scientists tracking the hand, a sublimely weird malt-shop assault scene, and the crawling arm's demise comes via a pack of stray cats! Classic trash from start to finish!
