* DawsonCasting: Reference is made to "the juvenile gang problem", and Street Thunder is further referred to as a "youth gang", yet all its members appear to be in their 20s at least.

** Speaking of ''Rio Bravo'', Leigh's name is an in-joke reference to writer 'Leigh Brackett' (qv). Wilson always asking for a smoke is a running gag inspired by the cigarette gags in Creator/HowardHawks westerns.

* ShoutOut:
** The story that Ethan Bishop tells about his father sending him to a police station when he was six years old with a note is actually a true story told about his childhood by Creator/AlfredHitchcock. Hitchcock told this to Creator/FrancoisTruffaut in Truffaut's book ''Hitchcock''.
** There are a couple of dialogue nods to ''Film/OnceUponATimeInTheWest''. When asked to explain himself and his actions, Darwin responds, "Only at the point of dyin'." As Wilson explains why he has killed so many people, he recalls that when he first saw a preacher, the preacher told him, "Son, there is something strange about you. You got something to do with death."
** Creator/JohnCarpenter edited the film under the pseudonym [[Film/RioBravo John T. Chance]].

** During the siege, that is. They do have some dialogue in the opening scene, and in the infamous "Cholo" scene.

* EarnYourHappyEnding: most of the cast are dead and Wilson is still facing the death penalty but considering other films by John CArpenter that's downright saccharine.
