The character of Charles Bigelow was originally written with Michael Murphy
in mind but his casting was rejected by EMI Films. In the end the role was cast with Paul Le Mat
. Murphy had played the lead role in the earlier related film Strange Behavior
(1981). In the Starlog 1983 article "Michael Laughlin
: Attack of the Killer Cliches", Laughlin said "there didn't seem to be a good reason for his rejection. I guess it was a matter of personal taste". See more
