Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia According to John Carpenter on the audio commentary for Vampires (1998) that director Frank Darabont (who are very closed friends and Frank had a cameo in that film) asked Carpenter to play as a truck driver. Carpenter turned the offer down because he stated that he would only play a character that is about to or is killing someone or he's in bed with a beautiful woman. See more »
Goofs At the morgue, when Clint is about to be embalmed, his head moves. Earl, the embalmer, says it is just a reflex and that he has seen it before. As embalmers can attest, dead bodies are known to belch, fart, twitch and, on rare occasions, sit up. This is due not to "reflex" but because of gases moving through the body and muscles contracting as chemical changes begin. See more »

Quotes [last lines]
Sheriff Sam Eberly: [He's standing behind Clint, who has his back to him] Chilly today. I should have worn my top coat. I came to pay my respects to a friend. He's buried here. Did you know him?
Clint Goodman: [pause, then] No.
Sheriff Sam Eberly: Died last week. Died sudden. I never... never had the chance to tell him how much our friendship really meant to me.
Clint Goodman: Maybe he knows.
[starts to walk away]
Sheriff Sam Eberly: Hey, mister!
[Clint stops, slowly turns around to face Sam]
Sheriff Sam Eberly: I don't know who you are, but don't come back here... ever.
