According to Wikipedia, the picture "was released to capitalize on the UFO interest of the era. The film itself carries ties to Area 51, as well as ufology. Although it flopped (reportedly earning a gross of only $6 million), it tantalized those who saw government cover-ups of UFOs (such as the Roswell incident)". See more
Toward the end of the film, Lew and Steve (the heroes) are driving a gasoline truck, being chased by two government agents. Lew takes a signal flare and goes to the rear of the truck, dumping a large gasoline slick, shutting off the gas flow, then lighting the flare and throwing it on the slick, causing a fire that kills the two agents. The problem is, Lew throws the flare about three seconds after shutting off the gas. The truck is traveling at least fifty miles an hour... meaning that it would have put at least 200 feet between itself and the slick. Lew would have to throw the signal flare 70 yards, with perfect accuracy, for this trick to work. His throw clearly wouldn't carry the flare more than ten or twenty feet. See more
Again. Punch it in again. And make sure.
I tried three times, Harry. I keep on getting the same answer. These are all designated landing areas.
Oh my God, they're coming back!
