The video tape and DVD box art, which is based on the poster, had Fisher Steven's holding an assault rifle with sticks of dynamite strapped to his body and smoking a cigar. The Rifle, dynamite, and cigar have all been removed from the blu-ray case of the film. See more »
When Micheal and Ellie are talking in the GTO, the passenger side window is up except for camera shots from that side of the car. When Ellie opens the door to leave, the window is down. In the next cut, as she walks away from the car, the window is up. See more »
The closing credits are shown over still-photos from the film. A couple of the photos are from scenes not included in the film, or alternate takes of scenes used in the film. Also, three brief scenes filmed for the movie but not included in the final cut are shown. The credits end with Vince Latello's smiling mugshot from the film. See more »
If you've never seen this movie before, give it a try...It's a great 80's high school flick. Add it to your collection with Sixteen Candles, Weird Science, The Breakfast Club, Ferris Buehler and Pretty in Pink. Plus, John Stockwell looks yummy driving his massively sweet red GTO. He was a pretty good actor before he became a pretty good director, too. Vinnie (the guy who played Ben in the Short Circuit movies) has some awesome one liners and Dennis Hopper plays a hysterical former hippie science teacher. Plus, you can laugh at the 80's special effects and realize how good we have it now. Give it a try, it's a good time. If you like this one, also try The Philadelphia Experiment. Another 80's sci-fi flick that has pretty similar special effects.
