* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: The novelization explicitly states at the end that there's no way to know which of the numerous problems were sabotage or genuine accidents.
* BestKnownForTheFanservice: Raquel Welch in a wet suit. She's even the first to strip down.

** Cora is attacked by antibodies in the inner ear, which causes her to scream bloody murder. She then complains of being strangled and unable to breathe. As if the claustrophobic feel of the movie wasn't enough.
** [[spoiler:Michaels' death - being digested alive by a phagocyte - is pretty grisly.]]
