Michael J.Fox made this low- budget werewolf spoof before Back To The Future,but it was released afterwards in order to capitalize on Fox's mega hit.Some countries really took advantage of this and on alot of publicity posters it claimed "Michael J.Fox was back from the future in a new comedy".Brazil even went so far as to call the film The Boy From The Future,and in Italy,Fox's character name was changed from Scott to Marty.
No. Not a single shot was filmed in Nebraska. The film takes place in fictional Beacon Town, Nebraska, but was filmed entirely in California."Friends in Fremont, Nebraska" are thanked in the special thanks section of the end credits. This tends to throw people off thinking it was filmed there. Director Rod Daniel had actually shot a dart at a map of the United States and it landed on Fremont, a town of about 26,000. He spent a few days there to explore the town and research midwestern teen life. Daniel wanted to shoot there, but they had no money to do location filming. Instead, he shot much of the film in South Pasadena (which is the go-to town when filmmakers want an "Anytown, America" feel to their film). Other location filming was done around Los Angeles and Montrose.
