  • Enforced Method Acting: Taaffe O'Connell's screams were a result of how cold the KY jelly used for the slime was.
  • Fatal Method Acting: Averted. Taaffe O'Connell was nearly crushed by the one-ton giant worm during the filming of the notorious rape scene.
  • Follow the Leader: The film was heavily inspired by Alien.
  • Old Shame: Actually averted, no one really seems to be that ashamed of working on it, not even Taaffe O'Connell, who played Daimeia.

  • Prop Recycling: The uniforms were left over from the recently-cancelled Battlestar Galactica (1978).
  • Wag the Director: Sid Haig didn't think the dialogue in the script matched the character of Quuhod, so he asked Roger Corman if he could play Quuhod as a near mute instead. Corman agreed, and let Haig portray Quuhod with almost no dialogue. Haig only says a single line in the whole movie.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Mark Hamill was considered for a part and he was eager to do a horror film, but for one reason or another, he wasn't cast.
    • Keith Carradine was considered for the role of Cabren.
  • Working Title: Galaxy of Horror, Quest and Mindwarp: An Infinity of Terror.
