"Say, Girlfriend, now that we've started finding bodies, why don't I leave you here in the middle of nowhere alone with this guy you obviously hate. You know, the passive-aggressive guy who, as far as we can tell at this point, seems like the most likely culprit for the dead guy we just found? Oh, don't worry about me; you just stay here in the rowboat with Oily McCrazy-eyes while I take his truck. BYE!"

From IMDB :
Kim Basinger auditioned for the female lead.

Sylvester Stallone eagerly pursued the casting agents for the part of Roger, and Martin Sheen was briefly attached to the project to play Mick.

Why couldn't we have gotten that movie?

At about 7:53 (right after the Billy Barty line) Crow moves his mouth but doesn't say anything. This makes me wonder: What was it he said? And how many riffs have had to be taken out post-production? Anybody notice other instances of this?

We had that exact station wagon when I was a kid. Not one like it. That exact model. My dad kept it for a long time, too. At the end of it's life, we painted it ourselves! With fluorescent blue paint. OMG it was the ugliest car on the block. It lasted long enough that I learned to drive on it. It had a 389cc V-8 engine in it. Boy was I the envy of my friends when this big fluorescent V-8 came chugging up the block!

Something that stands out for me here is the weird little sub-plot about Mick's wet clothes. First of all, why does the girl offer to lend him dry clothes? Did he only pack one outfit? And secondly, why does he decide against changing? Were they in a hurry or something? It would be one thing if they just forgot to have him change, but we see him actively deciding to put off changing until after they go on what appears to be a light errand.

When I was little I watched a made-for-TV movie about killer worms that was pretty similar to this; I remember in one scene the worms hid in an empty gardener's glove and when he put the gloves on again they ate his hands. So now I have this compulsion to check my gloves and boots before I garden. I think there was a sequel with giant killer lobsters. Anyone know what movies I'm talking about?
