Actor-Inspired Element: Tom Neyman was going through a phase of hand motifs in his art, so when he did the set design, he incorporated some of the sculpted hands he'd been working on, which led to the hand fixation of The Master and his cult.
Cowboy BeBop at His Computer: A film review from shortly after the premiere lists Torgo as the film's "hero", though granted he's the closest thing to one. Curiously, the reviewer also focuses in on Torgo's "beautiful set of teeth" as his most prominent feature.
Fan Nickname: The film was often referred to as Mangos: The Cans of Fruit by the more frustrated cast members.
Incestuous Casting: Tom Neyman (The Master) and Jackie Neyman (Debbie) are father and daughter. Debbie ends up becoming one of the Master's wives.
The film had no editing. At all. Instead, the film was edited in-camera. One shot shows Hal saying "Cut!", and then realized he didn't need to, because there was no way to stop the camera. The actress playing the girl making out with her boyfriend twice looked at the camera as if wondering when the shot would end. It also explains all of the endless shots of the car parking, and the reason why the film ran for several seconds before the Master's dog barked.
John Reynolds even had to make the leg braces he wears in the film himself. The only actors who were compensated were Jackey Neyman (who received a bicycle) and the dog playing the hellhound (50 pounds of food).
The actors who play the Master and Debbie are father and daughter.
The Master's evil dog was their dog, which is why (despite the dubbed-in barking) it's very friendly.
Peppi the poodle was the Warren family's dog.
Talking to Himself: Everyone is dubbed by five actors, including Warren himself. When the sheriff points out Mike's burned-out taillight, it becomes an odd Dada experiment in alternate reality.
Troubled Production: Ay, yi, yi. Working on what couldn't even be called shoestring budget, a Prima Donna Directorand dance instructor, tempers flaring because of how wild the film was going, it's a miracle things got to the point where it was released!
What Could Have Been: Harold Warren apparently talked a well-known Hollywood actressnote It's not known exactly who it was, but there's some circumstantial evidence to suggest that it might have been Suzanne Pleshette into flying to El Paso to play Margaret, but after realizing what an amateurish production it was (and that Warren wouldn't pay any money up front), she immediately quit.
