* SirNotAppearingInThisTrailer: Executive producer Creator/MelBrooks deliberately kept his name off the film, for fear people would expect it to be a comedy. He did the same with ''TheFly'', among other films in the '80s.

* InspirationallyDisadvantaged: An UnbuiltTrope here, and it could easily be read as a deconstruction, since a big part of the movie's point is that he's still being exploited. As Mothershead the nurse points out, "he's just being stared at all over again."
