When Flecks Crushe is brought to see mob boss Carl Coscarelli, Coscarelli can be seen in the background resting his arm on the bar holding a cigar. When it cuts from a long shot directly to a medium shot of Coscarelli, he removes the cigar from his mouth and rests his arm on the bar. See more »
Relax Ed. I know how awkward parties can be when you're unacquainted. But you know Corman, and now you know me, so just be yourself.

Beware "A" Movie only viewers, RUN don't walk from this quirky flick, as it might upset your delicate sensibilities. But for the more Brave of Heart, consider this a possible B-Movie Classic. Face Eater pokes fun at all manner of Genre, and enters the medium with tongue poked firmly in cheek. McClure is over the top as Flecks Crushe (dig that handle), Comic-Book Dealer to the public at large, with Gang Enforcer as his ultra secret alter ego. His cronies are dumber than a post. Throw in real locations, a Tarot Reader, stiff B-Dialogue, Sci-Fi Horror elements & a bizarre ending - You have a PARODY unlike all the Hollywood entries at large. With characters like Romero, Flecks, Corman, Cronenberg, Carpenter, Lois & Clark, one should not expect Oscar material, but you can expect an unusual ride ...
