The shadow of a camera on a tripod is briefly visible on the torso of Jack's shirt when he's talking to Kelly about US Wildlife. This is right before they look up at Hank dangling from the spring trap. See more »
Sheriff Hank Keough:
Look. He's suffering. I get to be humane.
[Aims grenade launcher]
No! No. No, no, no look, he's trapped. We've done it. So what it's not a net but, but, but he's trapped. Mission accomplished.
I've got more drugs. He's half dead.
He's half alive! Shoot him!

I love watching this movie. I love this dialog in a "horror" film. I got myself a copy on DVD and watch it at least a few times a year. There are some classic lines between the city folk vs. the bumpkins. Fonda's line about the sarcasm being too subtle is great (while spraying RAID in the middle of Maine). Betty White is building her career these days being the tart-mouthed old broad (see "Boston Legal"
another David Kelley production). Also, the interplay between Oliver
Platt and the actor playing the sheriff are priceless.
Contrary to what others have written - I think the special effects go just fine with the overall campy and comedy feel of the movie and the amount of gore is also appropriate. More would change the tone of the film from the comedy which I enjoy, to one more of a gross-out nature.
Just a favorite of mine. Try it if you, for example, liked "Love at First Bite" - you will probably like this too.
