Trivia: Bad Taste
- Acting for Two: both Derek and Robert are played by Peter Jackson, which makes the scene where Derek tries to torture Robert to reveal why the aliens are here all the funnier.
- Directed by Cast Member
- Dyeing for Your Art: Pete O'Herne had to keep his beard throughout the four year filming stretch.
- The Jackson family had to eat an inordinate number of vegetable meals during those four years, thanks to him commandeering the oven to make the alien costumes.
- Hey, It's That Guy!: Derek and Robert are both played by Peter Jackson himself.
- Name's the Same: These Boys aren't The Boys.
- Prop Recycling: One of the alien masks can be seen in Meet the Feebles.
- Public Domain: The movie was mistakenly thought to be in the public domain, as Mill Creek Entertainment briefly included it in a 50 pack of horror films. It turned out that the copyright was still valid and the movie was pulled from the set.
