Six-String Samurai (1998) Poster

Trivia

Filmed only on weekends, since Justin McGuire still had to go to school during production.
The squashed "de-anamorphic" effect on the opening title sequence is an homage to years of VHS fullscreen movies that had their widescreen titles similarly squashed. Many projectionists have mistakenly swapped out their lenses in the middle of this sequence. Ironically, the video version of the movie is letterboxed (although the cable broadcast version was not).
Jeffrey Falcon did all of his own stunts free of wires and special effects.
Lance Muniga didn't direct another movie until the 2005 film "The Crow: Wicked Prayer".
"Six-String Samurai" had been intended to be the first installment of a trilogy which had been discussed, but not yet realized, just like the predicted launching of the career of the film's star Jimmy Falcon.
The band The Red Elvises who are featured throughout the film's soundtrack appear as themselves, the band with the "nice shoes". The large, triangular string instrument that one of the band members is playing is an electric balalaika.

Buddy is implied to be the rock n' roll legend Buddy Holly (Due to his physical similarities and musical ability).
