A Graboid set a trap while the survivors were riding on a heavy truck. No one has any back-up plans.

** Early in the movie, Earl falls out of the back of the truck and hits the ground headfirst, still wrapped in his brown sleeping bag, which makes him look an awful lot like a Graboid. This bears a heavy resemblance to [[spoiler: the way Stumpy crashes through the cliff and falls to its death.]]

* Foreshadowing: Early in the Movie, Vale and Earl discover the Edgar, the town drunk, clinging to the top of a power pylon. Assuming him to simply be plastered, they climb up to get him; only to discover that he has died from dehydration after sitting up there for three days, confusing them both. It's later revealed that if one of the Graboids has you trapped somewhere, they'll wait for days until they assume you to be dead.

* FoodAsBribe: In an early scene, Val and Earl decide to leave Perfection for good, but are stopped by Nancy, who offers them work with free lunches and beer. In the next scene, they're on their way out of town, hardly able to believe they turned the offer down.

Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: When Chang is partially swallowed by the Graboid, it swerves back and forth before drawing back under the ground. It's almost identical to the scene near the end of ''Film/{{Jaws}}'' where Quint slides into the mouth of the giant shark and it swings back and forth with him in its mouth before sliding back into the water.
