** The footage of the house blowing up to establish the power of Dr. Doom's lazer cannon is StockFootage of a house being obliterated by an atomic bomb from 1955. This would have been especially obvious to 90's audiences given the clip's notoriety in the media during the Cold War.

* TwoDecadesBehind: If it wasn't for the CG effects for the Human Torch, you'd believe that this movie was straight from the 70's considering it's low production values [[note]]not helped by the fact that the movie was ripped from a low quality copy of the final cut[[/note]]. This movie was actually made in 1994, [[UpToEleven a full year after Jurassic Park's release]].
** The space suits that the group wear vaguely resemble early space suits worn by astronauts in the early 60's. At the time of this film's production space suits were given a drastically different re-design to allow for safer travel in space.

* TruerToTheText: While the film may have been obscure and had the cases of AdaptationOriginConnection and SparedByTheAdaptation, it is much more faithful to the comics than all of the modern live-action adaptations of the Fantastic Four that came after it (especially the [[Film/FantasticFour2015 one]] that came out in 2015, which is an example of [[InNameOnly an adaptation that has nothing in common with the source material outside of it's title]], well, patricianly it's title in the case of the film).

** It may not have been on purpose but when Reed sees Sue for the first time since she grew up, it is almost identical to the shot in ''BlueVelvet'' in which the protagonist meets his love interest. DavidLynch used the same shot in ''Film/{{Eraserhead}}''.

In 1992, The Constantin Film production company held the film rights to the ''Comicbook/FantasticFour'' comic book, but they were about to lose said film rights unless they began production by December of that year. Since both the budget and the technology necessary for such a venture were lacking at the time, they instead opted to do a ''very'' low-budget film produced by Creator/RogerCorman and directed by journeyman music video director [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0766020/reference Oley Sassone]]; this was done as an AshcanCopy to maintain the rights, and it was never released in theaters or any home media. However, a release date was set for 1994 and the cast and crew were told the film would be released. Although Creator/StanLee says that it was never intended to be released, Corman and producer Bernd Eichinger claim that they ''did'' plan to release it, but Marvel, fearing that it would [[InkStainAdaptation cheapen the franchise]], bought the film for the amount of money Constantin spent making it and ordered all prints destroyed.
