** The scene of Kylie getting attacked by a slug in the bathtub is a deliberate callback to a key scene in Creator/DavidCronenberg's 1976 horror ''Shivers'', a film about humans being taken over by parasite alien worms. Director John Gunn is on record as saying ''Shivers'' was a major influence on his movie. It's also extremely similar to an iconic scene in ''Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet''.

* AntiVillain: Grant. He's immediately established as wealthy and actively worried about other men showing active interest in his beautiful wife, but when given the chance to sleep with her sister, he refuses her advances. WordOfGod is that he [[spoiler:died as soon as he was infected, but the resulting entity retained much of his personality]], including his genuine love for Starla.

* {{Homage}}: Most obviously to ''Night of the Creeps''. Starla teaches at [[Film/{{Tremors}} Earl Bassett]] Community School, the mayor's name is [[Film/TheThing1982 R.J. MacReady]], there's a store in town called [[Film/{{Videodrome}} Max Renn]]'s, and Bill mentions the [[Film/TheBrood Raglan]] and [[Film/RosemarysBaby Castevet]] farms. The scene of Kylie getting attacked by a slug in the bathtub has definite echoes of ''Shivers'', as well.
