** [[spoiler: Ironically, the fact that the lines were cut ends up being the reason why they receive back up, as two cops investigating the reports of gunfire discover the body of the repairman who had been sent to repair the lines]].



*** And even if it was just to look for a missing van that was investigating cut phone wires, it's still related, as the wires are most likely the ones the gang cut to prevent the precinct from calling for backup.

* 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]].
