- Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: The opening (which was added strictly for the nudity and with no narrative connection to the rest of the film), along with the whole "flag on the moon" thing.note
- Memetic Mutation: "Flag on the Moon. How did it get there?"
- "Doctors can't help her. Maybe angels, but not doctors."
- "A man murdered, a woman's purse".
- "Joe Dobson... caught in the wheels of progress."
- Padding: Dear god yes! This film just drags on and on with many scenes that often serve little-to-no purpose whatsoever. As Servo puts it:(imitating the narrator) "This film stops at nothing, and stays there."
- Retroactive Recognition: The passer-by who finds Javorski's first victim and reports it to the police later had the more memorable (if not really that much more substantial) role of Cherokee Jack in Red Zone Cuba.
- So Bad, It's Good: It's Coleman Francis' best. As in the only one that's watchable without riffing.
- Special Effect Failure:
Mike: (imitating the narrator) "Coleman Francis solves the problem of sound sync."
- Obviously Tor Johnson couldn't actually strangle his fellow actors, but his fake strangling here is so limp it looks more like he's giving them all gentle neck massages.
- Then there's the fact that the movie didn't prerecord any sound during filming, leaving Coleman to randomly dub in the actors' dialogue in post when their mouths were obscured from the camera.
