* SugarWiki/VisualEffectsOfAwesome: The life-size model of the dead giant mantis itself in the tunnel, which looks pretty good for a movie from that era.

** Likewise a very brief long-shot of the mantis climbing the Washington Monument is genuinely impressive.

!!From the original film:



* SpecialEffectsFailure: Any number, but the one that really stands out is a weird inversion that worked ''too'' well, namely a ridiculously thick patch of fog which obscures what is supposed to be a camera focus on a giant mantis footprint (probably not helped by the lousy transfer).
-->'''Crow:''' Augh! Something we're supposed to be able to ''see''!!
** Subverted with the giant mantis itself, which looks pretty damn good for a movie from that era.

!!From the ''MysteryScienceTheater3000'' presentation:
* AcceptableTargets: Mike lets off a mean joke about Ukrainians.
* SugarWiki/FunnyMoments: Regarding one nerdy officer: "He's [[HappyDays Donnie Most-ing]] out of control!"
** Also, re: that same officer: "I think this guy is familiar with the term "Dishonorable [[{{Squick}} Discharge]]."
** "But I got a Mantis in my pantis..."
