The gas filling station that Paul stops for fuel is owned by the fictitious XYREX Corporation that he is running from. According to the sign post, the prices for the various fuels (in this 1992 post-nuclear world) cost $29.98 per-gallon for GasOil (diesel), $35.65 per-gallon for liquid methane, and $40.57 per-gallon for unleaded gasoline. He pays $105 for his fuel in silver coins. The Merchant who stops later at the station pays an unknown amount by a platinum credit card for methane which his car runs on. See more »
When the first gang member gets infected by the parasite, they refer to it several times as 'that thing on his arm' despite the fact that it is on his chest. See more »
I saw this movie in the theater and still have the funny little 3-D glasses with the creature's face printed on them that came with the movie. Maybe that gives me a soft spot for the film, which was totally forgettable in almost every other way. I have written in my 1982 notes to avoid the 3-D version unless you like double vision - so maybe those stupid glasses weren't very good. Poor editing made the movie a bit hard to follow - not that it really has anything worth following, though. The most notable thing about the film is the queasy feeling that you got from the monsters, which gave me the creeps in the same way that I get when I see leaches. I suppose that means that the movie did at least something right. I rated it a "5".
