* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Soundtrack by JerryGoldsmith. 'Nuff said.
* GeniusBonus: The ''Capricorn One'' is, by and large, made from modified Apollo program technology, including the launch vehicle (an obvious Saturn V rocket). This isn't as weird as it seems, since there were several 1970s studies on the feasibility of improved and expanded Apollo hardware being used for interplanetary flights to Venus and Mars, in addition to the CutShort 70s [[SpaceStation Skylab]] program.
* HellIsThatNoise: The eerie sound of those stalking helicopters.
* OneSceneWonder: Telly Savalas as the crop duster pilot Albain and his bizarre accusations of perversion.
