Over close ups of time piece mechanisms clicking along the credits run from the producer all the way down to Ed Begley Jr (!!) as a camera assistant. Finally, after they have all run through, the title card "EQUINOX" appears thus reversing the normal sequence. See more »

I love this movie, could watch it over and over...
The reason I like it so much is just the whole idea behind it. Plus the claymation is pretty cool! The way they act is hilarious (to me anyway), almost like an old Leave it to Beaver, the way they talked in those episodes. Combine that with what they are up against, and the contrast between the 2 is great!!
It shows how good a film can be without spending $100 million. Evil Dead is another one that comes to mind when I think of this movie.
I won't spoil anything, but sometimes they use a fisheye lens when things are getting insane/over the top, and Dennis Muren has done some great work in famous films since this was made.
