Between that and a number of odd scenes (most notably the BigLippedAlligatorMoment, see below), it's safe to say that this movie had some pretty strange art direction.

** Some prints were so dark that a few scenes were almost pitch-black. Samson and Sally exploring the sunken ship largely looked like a black screen with the occasional surreal, creepy image popping out.
