  • No Budget: The estimated budget for the film was a whopping $650 - and it shows.
  • The Shelf of Movie Languishment: The film was produced in 1992 (under the title The Weekend It Lives), and even received a brief theatrical showing in Baltimore, Maryland, but sat on the shelf for a decade before being released to DVD in 2002.
  • Unintentional Period Piece: Aside from the fact that the dialogue is heavily prevalent on Totally Radical lingo and conversations, there are numerous references to pop culture works like Inspector Gadget and RoboCop.
