* KilledMidSentence: Subverted. Burt only manages to say "Jesus Chri-" on the radio before it cuts out, and the others think the Graboids got him and Heather... for a few seconds, after which they hear [[MomentOfAwesome numerous gunshots coming from their compound]].

* FocusGroupEnding: The movie originally ended with [[spoiler:Val and Rhonda saying awkward goodbyes to each other and Val driving away, only for his friend Earl to change Val's mind halfway through and turn back for the Girl after all. Cue credits. The test audience however started chanting "Kiss Her!" during the awkward goodbye scene and so a new ending was shot, with a BigDamnKiss and a RelationshipUpgrade while credits start to roll. Definitely an improvement over original, which can be seen on the DVD.]]

* {{BFG}}: The "Elephant Gun". It was actually an 8-gauge side by side shotgun. In case you were wondering, that means the barrel has an inside diameter of 0.835 inch. Let's just say Michael Gross, the actor playing Burt, was lucky he was firing blanks.

Let's just say Michael Gross, the actor playing Burt, was lucky he was firing blanks. Had he been holding the gun below his shoulder like that, he would have likely broken his wrist or at least had the gun launch out of his hands.
