* In ''Film/TheDevilsCarnivalAlleluia'', The Agent asks The Publicist, played by Ted Neeley, "what's the buzz? Tell me what's happening," a question repeatedly asked of Neeley's character, Jesus, in a number from ''Music/JesusChristSuperstar''. An angel introduces a performance by God with the odd phrase "mark it up!" the title and refrain of a song from ''Film/RepoTheGeneticOpera'', a film that shares many of the same cast and crew, including the actor playing God.
